Family Ghost Hunting Party at BCC
A family friendly ghost hunting adventure is happening at Bristol Community College this October.
At first read, I wondered what exactly this 'ghost hunt' entailed. The adventure is open to kids as young as 4, but my daughter isn't the bravest when it comes to boos so I had to dig a little deeper.
And after talking with Esteban Martinez at BCC I think even the littlest of ghost hunters are going to enjoy this event on October 25.
BCC's Culinary Arts, Early Education and Theater departments are getting together to create a spooky adventure for SouthCoast families.
Think dinner theater for kids.
For your $10 per person ticket, you start your night with a buffet dinner featuring kid favorites like chicken tenders, meatballs and french fries. You then break off into groups to begin your ghost hunt.
Just like going through a haunted house, the ghost hunt takes you through different BCC classrooms looking for 'ghosts.'
Theater students are acting as the ghosts in this adventure story and the kids 'find' them by doing silly dances, making ghost revealing noises and other fun things.
And after your search, the groups are brought back together in BCC's main theater for the final ghost reveal with a haunted happy ending.
The whole adventure is pretty low scare since the event is open to children from 4-12. Though an older crew might get a bigger boo than a younger crew (if they're into that sort of thing.)
Kids can wear their costumes too and between the dinner and the hunt there are games and activities with the students from the Early Education department.
The whole thing runs from 4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at BCC in Fall River and tickets can be bought online or at the Culinary Arts Department in G Building, lower level.
It does sound super fun and another great way to enjoy some indoor Halloween fun this season.
