Crystal Lake Photo Booth [ 9am - Midnight ]
Blairstown Museum volunteers will be on hand across the street at our annex building, located at 27 Main Street Blairstown, to help fans enjoy our Crystal Lake Photo Booth. This is always a fan favorite! We will have different Jason Voorhees actors throughout the day to pose with fans. Admission is free. Donations are greatly appreciated.
Friday the 13th Cornhole Lawn Games [ 9am - Midnight ]
Located across the street at our annex building, 27 Main Street Blairstown, our Friday the 13th Cornhole Game is best played with two teams. Each team can have up to 4 players, and each player takes turns tossing a corn-filled bag into a hole on the raised wooden platforms. When a bag lands in the hole, the team scores three points. A bag that lands on the platform scores one point. Players continue the game until one team reaches 21 points. Admission is free. Donations are greatly appreciated.
