Hear ghost stories from the past to learn about the history of this region during a new Haunted History Hayride being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in late October at the Oak Ridge Parklands in Shawnee Mission Park.
This special event is recommended for ages eight and older and is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 25. A storyteller will entertain the hayride participants with spirited tales of long ago. Then as dark shadows gather around, riders will enjoy the fire with cider and marshmallows. All children must be accompanied by a paying adult.
This Haunted History Hayride will take place beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24, at Oak Ridge Parklands in Shawnee Mission Park, 7460 Ogg Road, Shawnee. The cost for one two-hour program is $9 per person, including adults, for Johnson County residents or $10 per person for nonresidents, and advance registration is required. The hayride portion will last approximately 60 minutes, and will be followed by a 60-minute campfire with apple cider and marshmallows.
