FOLLOWED BY GUEST SPEAKER
GIGI CARNES / WEST. COUNTY PARKS
TOPIC WILL BE
"HAUNTED" PARKS OF WESTCHESTER
Virginia “Gigi” Carnes of the Westchester County Department of Parks will
explain in an exciting PowerPoint program.
Fact or Folklore?
Urban Myths or Actual
Throughout some of Westchester
County’s 50 parks, unrecognized sounds
and footsteps have been heard and objects have mysteriously moved by themselves. These unsolved “ghostly,
eerie and spooky”
occurrences will be brought to
light by Curator Gigi Carnes. The “happenings” in parks, such
as Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, Muscoot Farm, Tibbetts Brook Park in Yonkers,
Lasdon Estate in Somers and other sites, are based on urban myths, folklore, actual happenings and personal experiences.
It’s your choice to
believe them ...or not!
Free and open to the public
Halloween themed refreshments will be served
