There are plenty of places that are considered haunted around Alton.  One of the places that is not hopes to conjure up a little of the haunted spirit this Saturday, as the National Great Rivers Museum is hosting its first Haunted Museum event from 6-9pm.  The night will feature trick or treating, face painting, crafts, and a special presentation by a reptile handler.

Park Ranger Erin Hilligoss-Volkmann says Serengeti Steve will be performing a pair of shows.

Hilligoss-Volkmann comments

There will also be a costume contest at 7:00, with awards for the cutest and scariest costumes, and a haunted tour of the Lock and Dam at 7:30.  The cost to attend this event is $5, and proceeds will go to fund future educational programming at the National Great Rivers Museum.  This event is open to all ages.
