Heritage Museum is getting in the Halloween spirit.

The Vintage Halloween Costume exhibit is open through Halloween and will feature costumes and masks from the 1950s through the 1970s.

“Here at the museum, we are about reminiscing and we figured this was a great opportunity for parents to remember Halloween from when they were kids, while giving the children an opportunity to see what their parents wore for Halloween at their age,” Museum Curator Tammy Schrecengost said.

According to Schrecengost, the exhibit has been in the works for the past year. Some costumes were donated last year to the museum, which sparked the idea in her mind. After researching and finding more costumes to display, the exhibit was constructed and features 15 costumes and masks.

“In a way, things have changed in the past 30 or 40 years, but at the same time they haven't really changed all that much,” Schrecengost said. “This exhibit is just a fun way to make some good memories with the family and bring the fun back into Halloween instead of the scare factor, which has kind of overshadowed the holiday in recent years.”

As a closing to the exhibit, the museum will host a Trunk or Treat on Halloween from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Admission will be free to the exhibit and goody bags and Halloween treats will be provided.
