CAPE MAY - Phantoms of the Physick Estate: Scary Tales: Those stories you heard as a child originated as much darker morality tales, as you will hear when you enter the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate museum, 1048 Washington St. Characters from these “scary tales” will tell their stories as they guide you through the first floor of the museum then onto the grounds of the Estate, where the tales come to life and the Big Bad Wolf usually wins. Friday, Oct. 24, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. $15 adults, $12 for children (ages 3-12). Combine the tour with Tales of Terror Trolley Ride or Ghosts of Cape May Trolley Ride and save $2.
