Central School to Transform into Haunted House for Halloween

The following is a News Release from the from the Central School Of Arts and Humanities Center:

Tired of the same old Halloween routine? Friends of Central School invites you to experience another side of local history by bringing the family to the Central School Arts and Humanities Center on Sunday, October 30th, for an evening of ghost stories, haunted history tours, and spooky kids' activities in the rooms and corridors of the nearly 100 year old City of Lake Charles historic building. From 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Central School will transform into a family-friendly haunted house with an array of activities and performances for all ages and a bonfire in the parking lot at 7:30 p.m.

Upon entering Central School, visitors will be guided by elevator operators who will take small groups throughout the third floor's haunted house. Creepy characters from Medusa and  evil witches to mad scientists and Igor will lurk around every corner. While stocking up on their favorite candy, children can get their faces painted, then visit the Central School Theater to meet spooky clowns, enchanting magicians, and balloon animal makers. Afterwards, families can gather around an open bonfire for chilling ghost stories and even more surprises.  Come dressed up in your Halloween best and join the fun!

While there is no admission into the Central School Haunted House, donations to the Friends of Central School are welcome.  The Friends group will be selling commemorative bricks and Christmas ornaments (celebrating the historic building's centennial anniversary) at the event to help fund and support improvement projects at Central School Arts and Humanities Center.  For more information or to volunteer in the haunted house, contact the Arts Council at (337) 439-2787.
