All rites of fall in Lewiston.
Whether you're just out to have some fun or to learn something of the paranormal, Lewiston's Marble Orchard Ghost Walks showcase Lewiston's rough and tumble frontier past, as well as its gloriously creepy present. Lurking behind Lewiston's serene façade lies a shadowy past filled with nightmarish spirits, ominous events and haunted buildings.
The Marble Orchard Ghost Walks, one of Western New York's most popular tourist destinations - jam-packed with both historical truths and ghostly legends - returns this weekend. During the 90-minute walk, the Marble Orchard Players will take guests back in time as they share ghost stories, myths and tales of tragedy, crime, mayhem and murder, the grim and ghastly deeds of Lewiston's best ... and worse. Patrons will hear secrets, both funny and sinister, of events that happened a long time ago.
Along the way, visitors will meet these spirits in person (see; we told you the dead were springing back to life) and hear their stories - tales of the macabre, the grisly and the ghostly. Step back in time with the offbeat theatrical guides through the historic district, always (as in life) ending up in the village cemetery.
The Marble Orchard Ghost Walks begin promptly at 7 p.m. each Saturday in September and October (rain or shine). Patrons are asked to meet in the Peace Garden, 476 Center St.
No reservations are necessary, but be sure to bring a flashlight. It gets dark early in the graveyard.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for members of the Lewiston Council on the Arts, and $5 for brave children under the age of 12. For more information, call 716-754-0166 or visit www.artcouncil.org.
