The Halloween event, Haunted Abilene, returns to town for its fifth year in a row, just in time to give a few last minute scares to the residents of Abilene. Sponsored by the Abilene Preservation League—this year there looks to be much more to do.
The “Haunted Abilene” kicks off October the 26th and 27th at the Swenson House, located at 1726 Swenson.
Welcoming you to the Dead and Breakfast is a “Ghostess” who will guide you through the historical home that is decked-out with horror characters from an array of scary movies and ghostly creatures. The tour takes you through each room where guest will bare witness to some horrific acts of horror including a walk through the “Living Graveyard”, “Death Chamber apartment” and the “Garden of Good and Evil”.
The inside isn’t the only place where you can find Halloween themed activities—watch a classic horror movie in the outdoor theater under the stars and catch a few other events as well; including games, face painting, a magician and air castle.
This gives the family an opportunity to experience some thrills and entertainment.
“Not only will children be able to wear their costumes one more time, they will be visiting one of Abilene’s most unique and inspiring historical homes, the only one open to the public," the Haunted Abilene founder and APL board member, Janet Payne said.
Hot dogs are available for purchase starting at 6 P.M. located under the arbor.
