Friday & Saturday, October 27 & 28: Happy Pirates Halloween Performances

Sail away on an adventure during the Happy Pirates Halloween Performances on Friday, October 27 at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 28 at 5 p.m. Join the crew for songs, dancing, and Halloween surprises.

Meet your favorite monsters during Monster Bash Weekend at The Strong museum Saturday, October 28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, October 29 from 1 to 4 p.m. Team up with ghoulish creatures and try your hand at Halloween-themed games and activities.

Join monsters in dance parties throughout the museum!
