Friday the 13th Celebration

He's baaaaaack...

Visit the Blairstown Museum on Friday the 13th from 9am to midnight to take your photo on our porch, an official movie location of everyone's favorite slasher Friday the 13th, Part 1.

While here view our Friday the 13th exhibits and purchase your very own copy of "On location in Blairstown: The Making of Friday the 13th". The book covers the creation, planning and filming of the iconic 1980 film through the memories of the cast and crew, many speaking for the first (and last) time. This all day celebration features Zella Bella Horror Face Art, Crystal Lake Photo Booth, Friday the 13th Costume Contest, Cornhole Games, and more!

Be sure to look around, you never know where the real life Jason is lurking...
