The Mahwah Public Library is prepping for Halloween in a big way Wednesday with two events designed to frighten, and sweeten.
First, at 3:30 p.m., kids in grades 5 through 12 are invited to make caramel apples. Toppings will be plentiful and participation is limited to 50 people, so get there early!
Then at 7 p.m., ghost writer Jim Wright will read his two popular local haunted tales -- one set in Allendale during the Revolutionary War and the other set in several locals in North Jersey 75 years ago.
The following information is from the library:
"The Ghosts of Allendale" tale is illustrated with the book’s original artwork by Northern Highlands students; "Phantoms of the Ramapos" is illustrated with archival photos of the Ho-Ho-Ku Speedway, old downtown Allendale, and the Darlington Schoolhouse. The stories will be followed by a brief question-and-answer period. This Halloween you decide if the stories are true. This program is free. No registration is necessary. Seats are available on a “first come” basis. Both stories are also available as free iTunes downloads.
