Today is Halloween, the day when the veil is thinnest between us and all of that scary, evil ectoplasm that wants to haul you, terrified and screaming, into that dark and mysterious realm (not to mention annoyingly knock stuff off your shelves). Sure, it’s made all cutesy what with the little kids in Bieber costumes (shiver) knocking on your door trying to shake you down for candy. But that’s just a cover for the horrors which await in the great beyond and are largely unexplored, except for on late-night AM radio.
Tonight, after handing out sugary treats to larcenous toddlers, get yourself ready to explore the spooky side of Calgary. Calgary Ghost Tours will be hosting their usual haunted Inglewood tours, but will also be presenting Ghost Hunting 101. You’ll learn tricks of the trade from an actual paranormal investigator so that you won’t have to wait for some long-dead ghoul to accidentally follow you home, but will have the tools to actually lure them back to your lair.
Tickets for Ghost Hunting 101 are $30 each. The meeting spot will be e-mailed to you after you register for the tour on the Calgary Ghost Tours website. Happy hunting!
