NEW BERN, NORTH CAROLINA – Ghostwalk is back! For 31 consecutive years, the New Bern Historical Society will conjure up historic characters from bygone days who will tell you all their secrets with “The Skeletons in our Closets.” Local costumed actors will portray some of the most spirited characters and stories from New Bern’s past, appearing October 28-30 from 6 PM to 9:30 PM.
An all-outdoor experience this year, expect to see ghost sites at Cedar Grove Cemetery; on the front porches along Haunted Hancock Street; and, everyone’s favorite haunt. Once again, tickets will be good for all three nights. Walk at your own pace; be on the lookout for engaging spirits hanging out at the Attmore-Oliver House; have your photo taken at the Tap Snap booth; stop for a sweet treat at the fabled VeriGood Bakery; and, don’t miss the Thrilling Experience at the Academy Green that has become a tradition. Expect meal opportunities at some of the area’s historic churches.
