We're just one day away from the scariest night of the year... So why not scare yourself silly a few hours early. Tonight you can catch the last hair-raising spooky movie courtesy of the Webb county heritage foundation and the Mexican Consulate. Tonight’s spooky movie is "Santo y Blue Demon contra los monstrous.” In which every movie monster gets some screen time, the Mummy, the Werewolf, a vampire, a hunchback midget, and even a Cyclops. Don’t miss the last installment of these vintage, scary, campy movies. That’s tonight at 8pm on the patio of the Border Heritage Museum at 810 Zaragoza. Movies are in Spanish with English subtitles and are free, but a donation of five bucks is appreciated. For more information, call 727-0977.
If you're looking for some pre-Halloween fun, you can head on out to the Prada Elementary fall festival tonight. The event takes place from 5 to 8 p-m on Friday at Prada Elementary. The fall festival will feature lots of games, like Guitar Hero contests, bingo and even a haunted house and of course, plenty of delicious food. All proceeds go to benefit student activities.
New this morning...hey Mindy did you know that La Posada hotel downtown is supposed to be haunted?
Well no Joey I didn’t but I've heard there are quite a few places in Laredo that have a history of "paranormal activity"
Samuel de la Garza our morning show producer slash photographer teamed up with the director of the Border Heritage Museum Rick Villarreal to give you a little taste of what you'll find on the haunted trolley tour.
