The Canadian Paranormal Society and the Okanagan Paranormal Group recently performed an investigation at O’Keefe Ranch.

“Members of the society spent two nights at the ranch, in various buildings, to determine the paranormal activity,” said Marilyn Berglund, the ranch’s event co-ordinator.

“It was definitely interesting and quite exciting.”

Earlier in the year meetings were held with the two organizations, and from those meetings the recent investigation was planned.

The next step will be a presentation of the group’s scientific findings Oct. 29 at the O’Keefe Ranch Paranormal Halloween event.

“This is not the ranch’s usual family fun event, but more an opportunity for folks to witness firsthand the techniques and specialized equipment used to investigate a particular location,” said Berglund.

A variety of tours will be offered in four different heritage buildings from 6 to 10 p.m.

Local resident Gabriel Newman will offer cemetery tours and there will be a question and answer session around the campfire at 9 p.m.

This event is suitable for children 16 years and older.  Admission will be $15 per person or $29 per family.

For more information, contact Berglund at 250-542-7868.
