Whether you're into the heart-racing-scary Halloween excitement or into a family friendly time, the Kern County Museum has them both this season.
New this year is HalloweenTown, a family friendly event. Monday on "First Look with Scott Cox," museum Executive Director Roger Perez said there is a fun Halloween area for the whole family to enjoy.
"It's inexpensive and you get to choose how much terror you want to experience," Perez said.
For just $10 admission or $8 for museum members, you can fire pumpkins through cannons, climb rocks, pedal kart, try your hand at carnival style games or jump in bounce houses.
But if you have the itch to get scared, head to Talladega Frights and Zombie X toward the back of the museum.
Simulcast host Scott Cox said Zombie X was addictive because it was so much fun.
"People get to ride on a trailer and open fire at zombies hiding in fields and it's awesome," Cox said.
HalloweenTown opens at 5 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. Saturdays and noon Sundays. HalloweenTown runs through Nov. 2.
The museum's Safe Halloween will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 30 and Oct. 31. The $10 admission, or $8 for museum members, will include more than 30 trick-or-treat stations, a costume contest, light show and Safe Halloween Haunt.
