TERRIFYING TALES FROM THE CABIN

Friday, October 13 at 7 p.m.

Jones-Neely Log House, Blueberry Hill Park

Have you ever experienced the fear of staying in a haunted house? Are you convinced you've had a close encounter with a ghost or spirit? Experienced storytellers and novices alike are encouraged to share terrifying stories with the group. Whether it's true or you've heard it from the friend of a friend, bring your spooky and scary tales and join us at the Jones-Neely Log House at Blueberry Hill Park. The Steel City Ghost Hunters will show off some ghost hunting videos to set the mood, and local author Thomas White will share some terrifying local stories. Snacks and libations will be provided, but please bring your own lawn chairs and blankets for seating. We'll have a bonfire to help warm you against the bone chilling tales!

Registration is required for this 21+ event.
