CORNING, N.Y. (WENY) - Happening in Corning, the 1880's themed series of events called "Days of Incandescence" begins October 20th and runs through Halloween.

Earlier today, newsies helped spread the news of the event, sharing newspapers of the era.

The celebration, which includes guided walking tours, is designed around the 1880 Partnership of Thomas Edison and Corning Flint Glass Works working together on the first lightbulb.

October 20th marks the first day of walking tours for the days of incandescence, which starts at 7 pm.

On October 27th, adults can take part in a libations crawl where there will be opportunities to have ten tastings and meet ten different 1880's citizens.

Based on real people from Corning, the characters will have plenty of stories filled with history and mystery.

On the October 29th, there will be a festival with an old time circus performer. People can bring your own already carved jack o lantern to Riverfront Park.

"It's a fun October event you can dress up in costume if you wish, its also a unique event to our community because its the story of our history in Corning," said Megan O'Toole, Creative Director for the Days of Incandescence."
