Hallow’s Eve at the Old Legation

31 10 2008

The word on the street is there will be a viewing of Young Frankenstein tonight at the Old Legation. For those of you who don’t know what it is (like us until a few minutes ago), the French Legation that was built in 1840 was once the home of the charg d’ affaires. Huh? Exactly! It was the home of the people who represented the French government in Texas while Texas was still a republic. Now it has become the property of the State of Texas and is available for tours during normal business hours. But for tonight, it’s all about ghouls and goblins! See below for more information.

Ghost tours 1-4pm at regular admission rates, community event 6-9pm FREE, 9pm movie $5/adult.

Austin’s oldest home will open its iron gates to visitors (living or otherwise) for a special evening of music, stories, games, and fun. Ghost tours of the home will be offered at regular admission prices at 1:00pm, 2:00pm, 3:00pm, and 4:00pm. The museum will then host an exciting community gathering from 6:00-9:00pm filled with music by Austin’s own David Lutes (www.plumtucker.net), stories of neighborhood ghosts, bobbing for apples, candlelight viewings of the historic home and Victorian mourning practices, and other FREE family fun. Grown-ups and young adults are invited to stay and watch an outdoor movie at 9:00pm in front of the historic home for just $5. Picnics are welcome!

Please call 512/472-8180 for movie title, event details, and information!
