For free, frightening fun for families can be had at Ghost Light: A Haunted Night of Songs and Stories from KC’s Cultural Crossroads on October 21 and 22, at Roanoke Park in Kansas City.

Food truck and family activities join the hybrid concert and ghost stories. Several of the artists will help revelers of all ages before the performance on Saturday between 4:30 and 7 p.m., so they can make masks or luminaries and join the Ghost Light Orchestra March in a Haunted Parade at 7 p.m.

Stuart Carden, the Artistic Director for the Kansas City Repertory Theatre, puts the event together.
