Ghosts and goblins slated to haunt Four Rivers Cultural Center at Hallow’s Evening Member Night

ONTARIO – Four Rivers Cultural Center will be a spooky place Friday, Oct. 14, when the facility hosts the Hallow’s Evening Member Night beginning at 6 p.m.
The event is free to members of the cultural center and $15 for the public.
“With all of our membership nights we are looking for activities that will encourage and inspire our members to step out of their comfort zone and experience something new. We just felt creatively it would be a miss if we didn’t program something spooky,” said Tanya Navarrete, marketing and development director at Four Rivers Cultural Center.
The spooky night begins with a social hour from 6 to 6:30 p.m. There are several activities planned for those who attend, including a “Terror-ific Tour” of the museum. The haunted walkway through the museum is geared toward all ages, said Navarrete.
“It is a mildly scary haunted museum tour,” said Navarrete. “We will have volunteers in the museum with their spooky masks on. They won’t be jumping out or approaching anybody,” said Navarrete.
Another activity, said Navarrete, will be the “Frightening Feeling Box,” where participates will put their hand in a box to try to guess what is inside to win a prize.
The individual who gives the most correct guesses is the winner.
A third activity will be a history session examining how Halloween came to be and the ways it evolved over time.
Those who attend will also get the opportunity to check out the center’s newest gallery exhibit, the Heart of Garcia. The exhibit features the work of a local father and his three children.
Matsy’s Restaurant & Catering will provide cash bar at the event.
Finger foods available will be Halloween-inspired, said Navarrete.
“Everything will have a touch of Halloween,” said Navarrete.
The event will be a good one for families, said Navarrete.
“If you are looking for a fun experience to spruce up your evening, while also celebrating Halloween season, this is perfect,” said Navarrete.
Navarrete said she hopes the whole community participates.
“Anytime you attend an event at the cultural center you are supporting what we do, our mission and our vision,” said Navarrete.
