Things to Do

Free Halloween HauntCert Comes to Fredericksburg Saturday!

By  | 

The Famous (or Infamous?) Fredericksburg Community Orchestra will present a HauntCert this Saturday, October 29th, at St Joseph’s Halle at 3:00 p.m.  Musicians will be dressed in costumes, and you are invited to come in costume as well.  The performance includes “Danse Macabre”, the “Oompa Loompa Song”, “Monster Mash”, and the theme from the “Addams Family”.  Afterward, children will be invited to learn about the musicians and their instruments in a Musical Petting Zoo.  Refreshments will be provided.  There are plenty of choices on what to do with your kids this Saturday, but this is one which may influence them in a positive way for many years.  This is not just a concert, but an interactive program for all ages!  St Joseph’s Halle is located at 212 West San Antonio Street in Fredericksburg, and there is ample parking.
