Ghost Tours Give New Spooks in Old Places

Starting at 6 p.m. today, Main Street's Ghost Tours will look at some eerie places in historic Woodbury.

Looking for some good old fashion Halloween fun minus the cheesy strobe lights and animatronics?

Try some authentic spookiness with Main Street's annual Ghost Tours, starting tonight at 6 p.m. Tours will begin at The White House at 39 S. Broad St., and go throughout historic Woodbury.

Guides will walk with the crowds through historic Woodbury, giving insight on Woodbury’s rich history and spooky legacy. Main Street’s Tara Rea says the tour has been revamped with new fun stories with exciting twists and new surprises. Rea says new storytellers will also be joining the tour.

The tours will run about every half hour from 6 to 8 p.m. and stop at almost a dozen sites in historic Woodbury.

Tickets can be purchased at Edwards Hairstyling on Broad St. or at the event site during tour hours. Ticket prices are $10 for adults; $5 for children under 13.

In addition, Main Street is also offering a tour and dinner special , which will start at 7 p.m. and end at Woodbury’s own Charlie Brown’s Steakhouse. Tickets for the dinner tour are $35 per person.

The Woodbury Public Library is also pitching in to help parents who want to go on the tour, but have little ones who may get spooked. From 6 to 8 p.m. the library will hold a special storytime for all children 7 years old and up, to accommodate parents going on the tour.

Jean Wipf, the library director, says the event started originally as a place to drop-off the kids, but they eventually decided to open the event to everyone in the community. Event activities will include spooky stories, crafts and a viewing of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

“It’s basically an open house with a Halloween theme,” says Wipf.

Yet, that isn’t all Main Street has to offer this Halloween season. Other upcoming Halloween events to look forward to in the area is Main Street’s own Trick-or-Treat on Broad. On Halloween, families are welcomed to come out to Broad Street from 3:30 to 5 p.m. for activities and treats from local merchants.
