The cast of the Marble Orchard Ghost Walks will make a special appearance at the Lewiston Peach Festival at noon Sunday, Sept. 12. Meet the "spirits" in person on the front porch of the newly remodeled Piper Law Office Welcome Center in Academy Park for a sneak peek at what you'll see when they haunt the graveyard on Saturday nights.

Whether you're out to have some fun, or to learn something of the paranormal, Lewiston's Marble Orchard Ghost Walks show off the unique personality of Lewiston's rough and tumble frontier past as well as its gloriously haunted present.

During the 90-minute walk, you'll hear classic ghost stories, myths and tales of tragedy, crime, mayhem and murder.  Along the way, you'll meet some of the spirits in person. This historical and educational tour, led by offbeat, theatrical guides takes visitors through the Historic District and into the Village Cemetery to learn about curses, graveyard etiquette and tombstone symbols.

Marble Orchard Ghost Walks begin promptly at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18, and continue every Saturday night through Oct. 31.  Meet at the Lewiston Courtyard, 476 Center St., rain or shine, and bring a flashlight. Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children under 12.
