Monster Mash Baseball Bash October 24 At Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum
The Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum will host a night of games, crafts, stories, treats and haunted fun for children on Saturday, Oct. 24. The museum, part of the Little League International complex, will host the fifth annual Monster Mash Baseball Bash from 6 to 9 p.m.
Proceeds from the fifth annual Monster Mash Baseball Bash, co-sponsored by the museum and the Iota Mu Chapter of Lycoming College's Alpha Xi Delta sorority, will benefit Autism Speaks, the national sorority’s philanthropy organization.
“Monster Mash Baseball Bash is a great time for both children and parents to celebrate Halloween,” Emily Rogers, a college junior and philanthropy chairwoman for the local chapter of the sorority, said.
“The annual South Williamsport Mummers Parade is earlier in the day,” Janice L. Ogurcak, Museum Director, said. “We have found that the Monster Mash is a great way for families to continue their Halloween festivities. It also is a great alternative for trick or treating.”
A haunted house is planned for the museum's lower level. A variety of crafts and games will be available on the other level of the museum. Children will have the opportunity to design their own picture frames and make spider webs while there will also be opportunities for photographs.
Games will include such things as Witch's Broom Limbo, Pumpkin Bowling, Pin the Wart on the Witch and Mummy Wrap. At 7 and 8 p.m., there will be costume judging contests. Children are encouraged to come in costume and participate in the contest.
Additionally, children will have the opportunity to decorate a snack and enjoy treats.
Admission is $3 per child, ages 13 and younger. Children under two are admitted free as well as all adults. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
