I can’t think of anything more terrifying than listening to ghost stories in October. Except maybe if said ghost stories were told in a cemetery. Featuring storytelling artists with tales so vivid you’ll jump out of your skin.
So when Storytelling Arts of Indiana invited my family to attend this year’s Ghost Stories at Crown Hill Cemetery, my instinct was “No, thank you!” But then I remembered that I live with plenty of people who would enjoy being creeped out of their skin. So, we’re headed to the Crown Hill on Saturday night for spooky tales in the middle of a graveyard.
The good news for me is that the stories begin at 7:30pm with only mildly spooky tales. The ghost stories get progressively scarier as the evening goes on. I plan to leave early on with the youngest, while the big kids stay behind to be terrified with my husband.
The gates open at 6:30, so pack a picnic and arrive early for great seating. You can also find a variety of food trucks on site. For an extra $15, purchase a ticket to the RIP Reception, featuring food, beer, and wine to mingle with the storytelling artists, board members, and sponsors of this awesome event.
