“Spirits of Wake Forest” ghost walk coming in October to downtown Wake Forest

If you’re looking for a “hauntingly” good time this fall season, then don’t miss the inaugural “Spirits of Wake Forest” ghost walk coming to downtown Wake Forest. Presented by Wake Forest Downtown (WFD), Inc., these tours will be offered throughout October at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 6 p.m. only on Sundays. 

Downtown Wake Forest’s buildings and sidewalks have seen well over 100 years of history, and they have some spooky stories to tell! Join WFD, Inc. and their incredible cast of storytellers to learn about the tragic train wrecks, murderous mamas and “borrowed” corpses that make up just a small piece of downtown’s haunted history.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children 10 and under and must be purchased in advance at http://bit.ly/DowntownWFMarketplace. Please note: Tickets are non-refundable/non-transferable. Tours will take place rain or shine. Any attendees under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Spirits of Wake Forest is planned and hosted by a volunteer committee, and all proceeds from ticket sales will serve as donations to further the mission of WFD, Inc. 

Lasting approximately one hour and 15 minutes, each ghost tour will take place in Historic Downtown Wake Forest’s business district, primarily along South White Street. Tour groups will meet outside Wake Forest Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks St., and the ghost walks will begin promptly at the scheduled time. Tours are within the business district only and will not include private residences.

Due to COVID-19, the following safety precautions will be observed:

·         Tours will be limited to a maximum of 15 participants and will be conducted entirely outdoors.

·         All ticket purchases will be handled online rather than in person.

·         Our storytellers will make every effort to maintain at least 6 feet of distance from attendees at all times. Attendees who are not part of the same family group are also encouraged to maintain social distance whenever possible.

·         Masks are required for all participants over the age of 5 and for all volunteers. This is in accordance with Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 147 and will be strictly enforced.
