Historic Granville in Jackson County will host the third annual Granville Ghost Walk and Haunted Village on Friday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 29.
Organizers say this year's event has many new features, including the transformation of Sutton Pioneer Village into a haunted village. The event kicks off at 5 p.m. each night in Granville Veterans Park, where visitors may dine while listening to a band of ghouls perform Halloween tunes. Then, at 6 p.m., a series of fright-filled, lantern-lit journeys begins, promising to offer attendees encounters with Granville ghosts of the past. A new group will depart every 30 minutes until 8 p.m.
The ghost walk, which includes laughs, sighs and shivers as well as scarecrows and Jack-o-lanterns, will conclude in the haunted pioneer village. Guests will have a chance to catch their breath on a lazy hayride back to the parking lot following the tour.
Advance tickets are $8, and visitors may pick the time of their ghost walk by calling the Sutton General Store at (931) 653-4151. Tickets on the night of the event will be $10 and may be purchased at the gazebo in Granville Veterans Park. Dinner is served each night in the park, and there is an additional charge for the meal.
Groups will be formed based on sales each night. Numbers in each group will be limited to enhance the experience, organizers say.
Historic Granville's Scarecrow Festival is also running through Oct. 29, Wednesday through Friday from noon until 3 p.m. and Saturday from noon until 5 p.m. Sutton General Store serves lunch each day beginning at 11 a.m.
