Do you have a wacky aunt, or grandmother that you just adore? Then you’ll love the Halloween event planned at 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30, at 49 Franklin in Rumford.

49 Franklin presents “Fun and Magic With The Witches of 49 Franklin.” They’re zany, wacky, and downright lovable! The witches of 49 Franklin are ready to show you how to celebrate the season with lots of laughs, and Halloween fun. Costumes are encouraged or come as you are.

“Witches” is a fun interactive event for the young and the young at heart. Meet the witches as they assist with the event by providing face painting, crafts, dances, trick or treating and helping out with local magician Scot Grassette who has some new tricks up his sleeve. He weaves interaction from the audience with help from unforgettable Wacky Wanda in a delightfully tailored magic show suited for the season.

Cindy Grassette returns as Wacky Wanda who has become smitten with the local magician. Will she be able to win him over? Will he fall under her spell? Will he be able to nicely avoid her advances?

The entire event is rated “Not Too Spooky” and is safe and appropriate for all ages and includes a fun magic show with Scot Grassette, face painting with Lucinda, crafts with Penelope and dancing with Wacky Wanda. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase by Witch Ella. The event will be capped off by forming a conga line and trick or treating around the room.

Scot’s Magic Shop will be open after the show.
