Hunt for ghosts or learn how to create spooky makeup effects at these Halloween-themed events.
Ever wonder if ghosts are real? If they are, how can you tell a real ghost from a fake? Do teens tend to experience poltergeists more than other age groups? A real ghost hunter from SF Ghost Society, Tommy Netzband, will talk about his experiences investigating ghosts and hauntings. He will also show you how to use ghost hunting tools and share some ghostly images and sounds he has caught on DVD. Get the info, then you decide what to believe! www.sfghostsociety.org

6:00pm - 7:00pm
Tim Holt presents a brief history of the American folksong, from the old-time ballads of Appalachia to the Depression-era songs of Woody Guthrie. He will also discuss the origins of our folk music in the British Isles and West Africa.
Holt will sing a variety of American folksongs, representing various aspects of our history and culture, including songs of westward settlement, old-time gospel, Guthrie's original contributions and a couple of Lead Belly classics.
As Holt comments, "The history of the American folksong is really a people's history of this country."
