This is more for BIG KIDS, but how fun to explore a haunted cave! I tried to do this a few years ago, but it is a little bit hard to find at night in the dark.

Due to overwhelming demand, The Haunted Cave is returning for the 2010 haunting season! We will be letting the doors creak open for a five night limited run on October 22nd, 23rd, 29th, 30th, and 31st from 7 to 10pm.
Admission is $12.00 per person. Receive $2.00 off if you bring a canned food donation. Food donations will go to Clinton Middle School’s Hawk’s Helping Others program. 
**Cherokee Caverns is located at 8524 Oak Ridge Hwy, Knoxville TN, 37931. At the junction of Hwy 62 and Hwy 162, near Solway, take Hwy 62 towards Karns. Historic Cherokee Caverns is approximately one mile out on the left. Just between West Emory Road. and Wexford Downs Subdivision.**


The Witches

The Children’s Theatre of Knoxville presents The Witches. In fairy tales, witches always wear silly black hats. And black cloaks. And they ride on broomsticks. But this is not a fairy tale. This play is about REAL witches. REAL witches dress in ordinary clothes and look very much like ordinary women. They live in ordinary houses, and they work in ordinary jobs. That is why they are so hard to catch. But an 86-year-old grandmother and her intrepid grandson propose to do just that, during their stay at a local hotel. But little do they know that the Executive Committee of the Witches of USA are meeting downstairs, and they’re formulating a plan to squelch and squitter every child they find. Roald Dahl, master of the creepy and the comic in novels like “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “James And the Giant Peach,” paints a unique vision of witches who live among us and the unlikely heroes who dare to fight them.
