The Greater Vernon Museum and Archives is pleased to announce that the Ghost Tours of Vernon is back for its 11th year of spine tingling tales and haunted houses.

“It is hard to believe that this will be my 11th year of holding the tours,” said creator and host Gabriel David Sumegi Newman the Second.

A professional storyteller and performer, Newman created the ghost tours as a way of combining the art of storytelling with local history.

“You come for the ghosts, which there are many of, but you leave with a new understanding and appreciation for the history of the region,” he said.

The tour will run for one week only, every day from July 26 until Aug. 1 at 9 p.m.

Tours leave from the steps of the Vernon museum. It is an outdoor walking tour and runs rain or shine, so dress appropriately. The tours cost $10 for ages 13 and up and $5 for those 12 and under (cash only.)

No reservations are necessary unless you want to book a private tour for 20 or more.
