The Ghost Walk of Pender’s Past returns Oct. 28, for one night only. Tours start at 5:30 p.m.
Each year, the Ghost Walk is a sell-out event. Tickets are limited.
“We encourage visitors to purchase tickets in advance,” said Pender County tourism director Tammy Proctor. “We hate to turn people away.”
The Ghost Walk encourages all parents with children aged five and under to sign up for the earlier tickets.
“We have found that young children get tired, cry, and disturb attendees in the group,” said Proctor. “We ask that all families respect others and sign up for the earlier Ghost Walk time slots.”
“We love sharing Pender County’s supernatural history,” said Stephanie Key, art director of the ghost walk. “You never know what haunts you’ll discover.”
This year, after dark, there will be a few more spooky ghostly sightings along the path
The Ghost Walk of Pender’s Past is a collaborative effort of volunteers from the Pender County Historical Society, Historical Society of Topsail Island, Pender Arts Council, Moores Creek National Battlefield, the Town of Burgaw, Burgaw Tourism Authority, Pender County Parks and Recreation, the Pender County Library, Pender County Schools, and Pender County Tourism.
“Ghost Walk is the recipient of two national awards from the National Association of Counties and Southeastern Travel Society,” said Key. “We have wonderful volunteers who make this annual event possible.”
