Campfire Tales Returns to History on Tap in October

October 15 @ 7:00 pm PDT

Clark County Historical Museum concludes its 2020 History on Tap season with “Campfire Tales 2: And the Zoom Call Was Coming from the House.” The event will be streamed online Thursday, Oct. 15 beginning at 7pm.

Presented by local historians Pat Jollota, Brad Richardson, and Jeff Davis, this talk will explore the modern folklore of Clark County through historical interpretations, personal stories, folktales, and various haunting accounts drawn from Jollota’s books, “Darkness Next Door” and “Haunted Vancouver.”

“It’s always exciting to engage in an exploration of our modern folklore. These stories are fascinating because they provide perspective on how people have seen the world historically,” said Brad Richardson, CCHM executive director. “This is also a fun way to communicate history to new audiences.”

The evening will begin with a game show-style segment in which three members of the audience will be invited on stage to answer a series of historical questions about Clark County and beyond. Another segment, “Ask Pat,” will feature local historian Pat Jollota’s answer to one question about local history, as selected from social media (#AskPat), email, or submitted through the museum.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at kigginstheatre.com/movies/history-on-tap and in-person or online through the Clark County Historical Museum. Ticket holders will receive a private link to the event 30 minutes prior to the show.

Support for October’s History on Tap is provided by IQ Credit Union, the Courtney Irvin Trust, and Wager Audio. Additional support is provided by Vancouver’s Downtown Association and ZZeppelin.
