Join us for a Halloween event that’s kind of scary, but mostly fun!  At the Archway’s HalloweenFest, we’ll play creepy carnival games, conquer the haunted obstacle course, and go on an i-spy hayrack rack, and that’s only the beginning.  We’ll enjoy live music with Kearney’s own Shockitanos, play bogeyman bingo, and pumpkin bowling.  Guess the number of candy corns in the witches cauldron or the weight of our great pumpkin and win a cool prize.  Costumes are encouraged and the cost is just $5/person.  No registration is required.  Just show up and have fun!

McDonald_LynZ

Join us for an entertaining and informative afternoon with Humanities Nebraska performer Michael McDonald.  He’ll perform some traditional cowboy poetry and introduce us to “Nighthawk Tunes,” the songs that cowboys sang to help settle their cattle at night.  The performance is free.

As always, the presentation will be followed by an ice cream social featuring rootbeer floats served from the Archway’s vintage soda fountain. Donations for refreshments are welcome.

Soda Fountain Sundaes are presented with the support of Humanities Nebraska and sponsored locally by Mike and Diane Schnieders.
