It was a dark and chilly night… well, not really. Activities started before dusk and the weather was rather pleasant for this time of year as the first ever Haunted Huffman Children’s Festival took place in and around the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9936 Saturday evening. Fun was had by kids and adults in costumes playing games, painting faces and listening to stories read by the Dayton and Montgomery County Library. An original puppet show by our own John Robinson kept the kids captivated, too. Scary movies finished the evening. Check the video for highlights. Thanks to Courtney and Joanie and all other volunteers for making this event a success.

    Thanks for the shout-out, but all I did was channel my inner Fortune Teller, Madame Huffman! All the credit for a great event goes to Courtney and John Dennison and their hard-working Committee of neighbors: Annette, John R, Chris, and Amy, Christina, & Ross.

    The Dayton Metro Library also deserves our thanks for sending staff members to read “scary” children’s stories. They brought free books for interested Huffman bibliophiles, too. Our library [and its dedicated staff] is an incredible community resource. Please support the Library levy on November 3.

    And finally, we would be remiss if we didn’t thank the VFW for their hospitality and delicious food! When it turned blustery, they invited Haunted Huffman to move into their main party room. Sheltered from the weather, guests enjoyed the warm hospitality of the Post Commander and members. They grill a mean hot dog and hamburger, too.

    According to Madame Huffman’s crystal ball, Haunted Huffman will continue to grow into THE signature family-friendly Halloween event in Dayton!
