With Halloween coming up soon, a number of Tri-State organizations are hosting a variety of events themed around the holiday. That includes the Evansville Museum of Arts and Science who are teaming up with the Junior League of Evansville to host a Neighborhood Halloween Bash on Saturday, October 26th.

The family friendly event will feature a costume contest, trick-or-treating opportunities throughout the museum, plus the chance to enjoy several hands-on activities. The event will also feature the chance to make Halloween-inspired crafts, harvest activities, science experiments, special guests, and the chance to learn more about Dia de los Muertos, or "Day of the Dead," a Mexican tradition celebrating the lives of those who are no longer with us.

Adult tickets are available for $12 each, $8 each for kids 4 to 17, and kids under 3 are free. If you're a Museum member, you get in free regardless of your age. You can get tickets at the Evansville Museum, or purchase them online through the Museum website. Proceeds from the event "will support the mission and education programs of the Evansville Museum."
