Don't miss this popular fall festival as Conner Prairie transforms into "Conner Scairie," a haunted land inhabited by fun-loving ghouls all vying for your vote to be elected "Monster In Charge" after their former leader, Lord Moldy Wart accidentally and irreversible turned himself into a cute, fuzzy, bunny with an errant spell. Catch Beautisha the cosmetics-loving witch as she conjures magical beauty tips with the audience. Howl out some Scary-o-ke tunes and play games with the disco-loving Harry Howler the crooning werewolf.
