Well, what a marvelous experience that was! We went out to help Cedarock Park in Burlington celebrate its 40th anniversary by telling scary stories around their campfire. We were told to expect between 50 and 60 people, and we arrived to see more than 250 folks gathered to hear stories. What a celebration that turned out to be. As the sky darkened and the star began to glitter above the trees, we lit tiki torches to create a “stage” and shared stories that were modestly scary so the young folks could enjoy the experience. We then took a break for apple cider and roasting marshmallows, and returned for two disturbing stories of “monster” children. Everyone seemed to have fun and enjoy the scare…we hope parents had no children up late that night with nightmares. Thanks to the Alamance County Public Library and the Alamance County Parks and Recreation Department for hosting Story Squad for this scary story evening.
