A NEW FALL TRADITION WILL BEGIN
The period between the 1880’s to the 1920’s is often considered the Golden Age of the Ghost Story. This tradition will be brought back to life and will cast a chilling shadow on the quaint Victorian water town known as Chesapeake City MD
The Town will make the perfect backdrop due to it’s hidden and very haunted past. In the briskness of October, the town may just take on an entirely different character after dark! Get ready to be immersed into a mobile theatrical experience and history lesson with a dark dollop of the Victorian Macabre.
The haunted story walk is a guided tour that lasts about 90 minutes, through the heart of the historic district, down the dark walkways lined with beautiful Victorian homes and along the scenic canal.
This will be true Victorian traditional storytelling at it’s finest, from an era rife with supernatural themes and practices, including mourning, spiritualism and funeral traditions.
The haunted walk will be led by a character known as a “Revisionist,” a person that retains the innate ability to speak with the unliving, to hear what sent them, and at times help to reveal and rewrite their circumstances and untimely demise.
Revisionists will lead each tour by lamplight, tell the never heard stories and protect event-goers from the apparitions that find their way back from the spirit world. Viewers will hear handwritten tales mixed with vignettes with ghosts from Chesapeake City’s past as the night unfolds.
An urban legend that has lurked in the Canals darkest waters will be uncovered in the production, as will other chilling tales evoking the town’s 200 plus years of history. If there is a place that’s truly haunted, it must be this town...the perfect setting.
At Town Hall, event-goers begin their nighttime excursion. All attendees are encouraged to wear their favorite period Victorian style garb as townspeople will be cavorting around town in theirs. Town Hall will also house custom artwork for sale, Victorian age spiritual artifacts and late 1800’s paranormal style experiences to view.
