JEFFERSON CITY, MO, OCT. 14, 2022 – Guests are invited to the annual Historical Haunts on the Homestead from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29.

Take part in the historic site’s first-ever virtual dog costume contest, then head out to the homestead for some competitive scarecrow building, a Halloween safety program for kids and a night of storytelling.

The storytelling kicks off with Boone Homestead favorite Todd Wilkinson sharing his stories from Vance Randolph. He will be followed by Mike and Nancee Micham, the entertaining couple known as EznDil. This duo has been entertaining across the Ozarks region through song, stories, humor and education for more than 25 years. They have been featured at national and state parks, libraries, schools, renaissance fairs and roots music celebrations. EznDil’s love of folk songs and tales, dad jokes, traditional Irish music and legends continues to grow. They love to share their gift of laughter and song with kids and “kids in adult clothing.”
