Looking for something a little different this Halloween? Visit the Museum of South Texas History in Edinburg this year and experience Halloween fun unlike any other!
The Museum of South Texas History presents Trick or Treat at MOSTHistory on Saturday, Oct. 31, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum will have a variety of family fun activities throughout the day, and as always, will have free admission for everyone from 10 a.m. to noon. No Trick or Treat celebration would be complete without candy! MOSTHistory will be distributing candy to children while supplies last.
Stroll through Rio Grande Legacy, MOSTHistory's signature exhibit, and the DÃ-a de los Muertos altars in the Old Jail Gallery. Catch MOSTHistory's puppet show, I Used to Be a Star. The puppet show, which is the first of three to be produced by the museum, begins at 2:00 p.m. and provides an exciting, educational experience for the entire family.
Need a professional touch to your Halloween make-up? Get your face painted by California native Anna Garcia. Garcia has provided incredible face paintings at the MOSTHistory DÃ-a de los Muertos celebrations for the past two years. Garcia will paint the faces of all ages for the unbelievable price of only $3.
"The museum looks forward to having Anna back for Trick or Treat at MOSTHistory!" said Melissa Tijerina, programming officer. "She has created many unforgettable faces for hundreds of visitors and promises to make your Halloween face amazing!"
Garcia grew up in Joaquin Valley, Calif., and moved to the Rio Grande Valley in 1990. She owns Dulce Vida, for which she creates cultural jewelry and unique custom pieces. Learn more about Anna and Dulce Vida at www.dulcevida.webs.com.
