Guide: Where to Celebrate Halloween 2016

A thrilling Halloween weekend is upon us!


( We know that you're crazy excited to get into those Halloween costumes as much as the kids are to go trick-or-treating! It's a long Halloween weekend this year, so make it count with the most fun parties and relaxing staycation. 



Solve a Halloween mystery at Ayala Museum's Midnight Museum 3: Murder in the Museum on October 28, 7 p.m. The senior curator of Ayala Museum is murdered during his gallery rounds just hours before the annual Midnight Museum event held every Halloween. But there is something very suspicious and amiss as it seems that the curator is aware not only of the threat to his life, but also who is behind it. Guests will soon be coming in to find the corpse and possibly some clues he left behind revealing the identity of the perpetrator. If you think you have what it takes to crack the curator’s code, then sign up for just P850! Slots are limited.



For more information or inquiries, call Ayala Museum at 759-8288.
