Halloween Stories with April Armstrong 3, 3:30 & 4 pm
April Armstrong is a featured storyteller in the Hudson Valley, a place of lively ghosts and ghoulies at Halloween time. Listen to her tell spooky, but not too spooky, stories in Glenview’s Great Hall. Hear about a spooky house, about a witch and a special kind of horse, and about a strange and wonderful cookie that makes a bad situation better.
April garnered a 2015 BRIO Award for storytelling from the Bronx Council for the Arts and her debut CD, The Cat Came Back: Stories and Songs with a Jazzy Twist won a 2015 Parents' Choice Award.

Planetarium: Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds — a Live Radio Frightfest 3:30 pm
Mars invades. This year, they’re back for Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds, real-time radio presented by Spring Training Productions. One show only on Sunday, October 30 at 3:30 pm. The story starts when a seemingly harmless meteor strike turns out to be the vanguard of a mega-Martian attack. Thrill to the story and the audio visual trick-or-treats projected on the Planetarium dome. War of the Worlds, first published by novelist H.G. Wells, was turned into a live radio play by Orson Welles in 1938. Extraterrestrial invasion makes a good story and like all good stories, this one stays real and lives on.
SATURDAY STORIES: All
Our Lady of Pompeii's Annual Spaghetti Dinner Sunday, October 30th from 1:00 - 6:00 PM in Dobbs Ferry..
Address: 95 Palisade St, Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522
Phone: (914) 693-1839
This spaghetti dinner is always very special. The dinner attracts those who love great spaghetti--people of different religious beliefs. One doesn't have to be Jewish to love Rye bread. And one doesn't have to be catholic to love delicious spaghetti. The people who attend are friendly, nice. The church is very charming, overlooking the spectacular Hudson River. Reminds me of small town America-- years ago when everyone knew each other and cared for each other. Many elected & appointed officials, community leaders attend this dinner annually and some even help to cook the spaghetti.
