Considering all we have been through these past eighteen months or so, it is good to see some semblance of normality returning, and especially for us in the aviation community. This is why it is nice to see that the American Airpower Museum in Farmingdale, New York is able to hold their annual Halloween Party on October 30th, 2021 – an event where children (and their parents!) can enjoy the spooky festivities in a safe, aviation-filled environment. As such, we thought our readers might enjoy learning about this event through the museum’s press release below. We feel sure that it will be as entertaining as before, and a great place for kids to learn a little aviation history at the same time!
Farmingdale, NY, October 7, 2021 — Who said Halloween is just for children? Fright takes flight at American
Airpower Scarepower Museum on Saturday, October 30, 2021. Once again, our Museum resumes its tradition of offering a child-safe place for children to enjoy Halloween shenanigans. Flap your bat wings to the Museum and go trick or treating in our Haunted Hangar! Costumed staff will hand out treats as children go door to door in the safety of Hangar 3. Mingle with ghosts, goblins, ghouls, skeletons, vampires and witches inside our spooky home, decorated and creatively transformed into a horror house with dry ice fog, spider webs, flying bats and new frights at every turn. Yikes!
We dare you to tour our Haunted Bomber and then enter the Museum’s Maze of Horrors! Have your picture taken next to the Ghost Fighter, then climb aboard our Tram of Terror for a ride around Hangar 3. We’ll also have crafts, games with prizes, face painting and more. And listen up you scary parents, please dress up your children to compete in our Costume Contest for ages one through 16. Adults are encouraged to dress up in horrific garb too, which will add to the festive atmosphere! Prizes will be awarded for the best original and creative costumes, courtesy of Cockpit USA. Lots of Halloween music, like John Zacherley’s “Monster Mash,” for those old ghouls who like to dance!
