Banksia After Dark: Spooky Tour

We will be back online this year, bringing you stories and specters from Aiken County’s past, with one gigantic change: it’s free! That’s right! We miss this program so much we wanted to scare everyone… er… we mean, make this event accessible to everyone in the county and beyond. You, your family, and friends will have the honor of listening to some of Aiken’s most elite among the undead.

There are stories of murder and mayhem, mysterious disappearing royalty, cursed jewels, and so much more! Just grab your popcorn, vampire teeth, and all the souls in your house on the evening of Friday, October 22nd, and prepare to be entertained. Stay tuned to our social media pages—Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube—for more information.

Our plan is to post the link to the free mini-movie that Friday evening, around 7pm. The film, which will be hosted on YouTube, will begin at 8pm and will last approximately 45 to 50 minutes. We so hope you can make it and will tell all your ghoul-friends and boo-friends.

Annual Dave Day Celebration | Aiken County Historical Museum

We are so glad to be able to host this event again after missing it for the first time last year. This is a celebration of the life of Edgefield potter, David Drake, also known as Dave the Potter. Bring your children for a lesson in clay working, a fun craft, and a special tour of the pottery hall. This program, generously sponsored by Aiken’s own Major General Irene Trowell-Harris, is free for Aiken County children; register by email at lwalker@aikencountysc.gov.
