The tour will meet at 1842 Meeting House on 40 Main Street in Bethel. The adventure will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes. This is listed as a "family-friendly" event by the Patch, the Bethel Historical Society Facebook page and the website.

Anyone interested needs to make a reservation by October 24. If you are in need of additional information, you can call Patricia Rist at (203)-743-5893, go to the Facebook page, or visit the Bethel Historical Society website.

Finally! A Family-Friendly event in Bethel! Ha, that was a joke, you see because there are a MILLION "family-friendly" events in our area, and sometimes I want to find something to do with just my wife and my friends.

That would normally be my critique but in this case, I welcome a family-friendly night out. Some of these Halloween experiences have gotten out of hand. I'm not naming any names but, do we need severed heads? I mean, they are not actual severed heads but if they look so real, that I need to ask, we've taken it too far.

Back in the early 2000's, I worked at a haunted attraction and they cautioned us to make people feel safe. Things have come a long way, and that no longer seems to be the directive at these.

The cost for this event is $15 for adults, $7 for children from grades 5-12, which can be paid using PayPal. The event includes cider and donuts.

We talked about the Bethel Historical Society Event on the Ethan, Lou and Large Dave Morning Show on I-95 (9/22/22). You can listen to that show segment below, the segment is NOT family-friendly.


The Ethan, Lou and Dave Morning Show on I-95 - Weekday Mornings from 6-10 am on the I-95 Rock Mobile App, on the radio at 95.1 FM (WRKI) and available on-demand, wherever you get your podcasts.

Look, as we mentioned, there is something for everyone in the area when it comes to Halloween. You want family-friendly, you have the Bethel Historical Society event, you want to be scared into oblivion, go to the New Milford Harrybrooke Park event. It's going to be a busy Halloween season for me, my wife will make me go to all of them.

Danbury Area Folks Share Their Terrifying + Hilarious Halloween Costume Ideas for 2021

We asked the Ethan and Lou Radio Show listeners (I-95) to send us a photo of their favorite Halloween costume of all-time and they sent the following submissions using the I-95 Rock Mobile App, which happens to be free to download at Google Play or the App Store. 

Danbury Area Folks Share Their NFL Fandom for Playoffs

I am an Oakland/LA/Las Vegas Raiders fan, and have been since I was a kid and I'm often outnumbered in NFL conversations, but not completely alone. In the NFL, there are fans of all kinds in every city in America.

Before the Raiders losing playoff game against the Bengals last weekend, I reached out to my friends who are Raiders fans and asked them to send me a photo of them wearing a jersey or celebrating the team in some way. I had a great response and it kicked off a fun sports conversation but it was for Raiders fans only.

I wanted to give the same opportunity to all NFL fans in the Greater-Danbury area, whether their team was in the playoffs or not. I sent out the call on my radio show and on social media and these are the responses I got back.
