At the culmination of the Halloween season, I will infotain notions of Blood Alley – both the one beside the Majestic, and the one behind (long story).
On and along the alleys and beyond we will walk past stories of the haunted Majestic Theatre, medieval half-timbering, two vaults under Masonic Alley, Camp Sherman deaths, the Great Fire of 1852, two sub-levels of lost brewery vaults, the lost downtown Adena mound, buried Deer Creek, death in a tree in the flood of 1913…and tales from past Ghost Walks.
The first two tours will end with the microcrafting of Old Capitol Brewing at ~77 North Paint Street, on the site of the Adena mound – where I will entertain questions about spooky spaces downtown as you can imbibe unique brews and have a dinner or snack from a food truck.
Bring your interest in history and sense of mystery, cameras, Halloween costumes, discerning tastes, flashlights…and proton packs.
Three start times:
– 2pm Saturday, October 30th, 2021, ending in time for the downtown trick-or-treat at 4pm (and Halloween Parade later).
– 6pm AND 8pm Halloween eve, Sunday, October 31st, 2021. (The 8pm tour excludes the brewery.)
It will be $10 for adults, $5 for students, and $15 for families (three or more family members including children), $0 for certified dead. Pay “at the door” with cash or check.
The approximately hour-and-a-half tours start under the Majestic Theatre marquee at 45 East Second Street, and after a loop, ends in Old Capitol Brewery at 77 North Paint Street. The tour will be on level sidewalks and a few bumpy alleys, crossing a street twice, and limited to about 25 attendees for safety and practicality. (The Majestic Theatre interior is not included.)
Rain or shine! The spooky season ends regardless of weather, and these spirits will be gone before I can reschedule!
