The Friends of Land Between the Lakes invite visitors to Snap Apple Night from 6-8:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Homeplace 1850s Working Farm, located at 4512 The Trace near Dover, Tennessee, inside Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.

Attendees will step back in time for the old-time tradition of storytelling and listen to award winning storyteller Brian "Fox" Ellis as he shares scary stories. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Visitors will enjoy an evening in the 1850s where the nights were very dark and the only light came from lanterns. Family entertainment was sitting around the hearth listening to stories of long ago.

Between storytelling, individuals can get a hot cup of cider and discover their future as they tap into the "other world" and learn their fate through Victorian fortune telling games.

This program is ideal for home educators and will be held inside in case of rain.

Attendees should be prepared for the cooler weather.

Admission is $7 for ages 13 and up; $5 for ages 5-12; and free for those 4 and under. Cost for this special event is not included with daily admission.

Programming includes:

• 6 p.m.: Scary Stories

• 6:45 p.m.: Fortune Telling Games
