Folklore & Frost: Haunted Happenings

Join WPBS on Thursday, October 19th at 7pm at the Lowville Town Hall Theater for a spooky, good time!

WPBS-TV presents Folklore & Frost: Haunted Happenings … the stories of strange occurrences in Northern New York!

A young couple on a fateful date to the Lowville Town Hall movie theater gets more than just a matinee as they are drawn into the inexplicable nightmare … of Folklore and Frost. The strange history of the Hubbard House in Champion, New York, built in 1820 includes a will stipulating that the house must never be sold outside the family. It’s now home to the Four River Valleys Historical Society, but the original owners may still live there … At Thompson Park, there may exist a supernatural portal to another dimension. Tug Hill Annie died tragically in a car accident in 1954, and seems forever doomed to walk along a lonely stretch of route 177 …

In 1889, the schooner ship Bavaria was found washed ashore in Henderson Harbor. No bodies were ever found. So … what happened to their crew?

Olive Paddock bequeathed her beautiful mansion to the Jefferson County Historical Society in 1922 – and the overly protective owner may still be watching over her stately home … Watch WPBS-TV’s local production of Folklore and Frost: Haunted Happenings, and discover the haunted happenings in the North Country!

Folklore & Frost: Haunted Happenings will also be making a debut at the Black River Drive In Theatre, Saturday, October 28th! They will be featuring the horror classic, "Night of the Living Dead" and Folklore & Frost: Haunted Happenings, beginning at 7pm! The showing is free to the public with limited menu items available at the concession stand, while supplies last. We hope to see you there!
