The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum was open for free to visitors during the Witch Way to Main Street program this Halloween. Many children and their families took the opportunity to tour the museum’s exhibits and to garner some candy from the witch guarding the entrance.
After the Witch Way to Main Street event concluded, it was off to the Prudhomme-Rouquier House for ghost stories as told by Natchitoches Service League members. This spooky event was a fundraiser for an eminently worthy-and within reach-milestone, paying off the mortgage on the house. The Natchitoches Service League purchased the house and has been instrumental in its preservation. It was revealed at the event for the first time that the Prudhomme-Roquier house is quite possibly the only place in the area that has been looked into by paranormal investigators. The investigators spent several nights in the house and determined that there was unusual activity indicative of spirits. The Prudhomme-Rouquier House is a perfect venue for spooky ghost stories. While Lilith did not make an appearance this night, who is to say what will happen next year?
Lastly, the Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony held their annual Halloween Concert at NSU’s Magale Recital Hall. The symphony’s musicians were in a variety of costumes as were some of the audience members. The symphony played a variety of classical and popular pieces, all with a Halloween theme.
