Celebrate Halloween like they did in the days before scary movies: listening to ghost stories around a bonfire.

The Fort Nisqually Foundation is putting on “Bonfires, Beaver Pelts & Bogeymen,” 7-9 p.m October 28 and 29. Participants will follow a trail of glowing jack-o-lanterns to a bonfire in the meadow beyond the fort’s walls. The evening begins with gentler tales appropriate for all ages. After a break for complimentary cider and cookies the stories will get increasingly scarier.

Organizers remind you to dress accordingly and to bring chairs or blankets but not bring umbrellas. Seating begins at 6:30 pm, stories begin at 7 pm.

Tickets are available online at . Prices are $5 per adult, $3 per child 12 and younger or $20 per family.

Fort Nisqually is located in Tacoma’s Point Defiance Park is owned and operated by Metro Parks Tacoma.
