Don't miss the last night of the Lake Mary Ghost Tour!

A bunch of us headed out last night to our back yard of Lake Mary for a reasonably priced ($14 for a family of four) Ghost Tour put on by the Lake Mary Historical Museum.  It was dark, there were ghosts and even a cookie at the end! 

The Ghost Tour was a tour of the downtown area of Lake Mary, near City Hall, to the cemetary and back.  It consisted of walking to different ghost stations with a tour and sometimes getting a little spooked.  Ok, the adults weren't spooked but the kids were.  Anyway, at each station you were told different stories about people who were from Lake Mary and their lives and how they became ghosts.  There was one station about zombies that had nothing to do with Lake Mary or ghosts but the boys loved it. 

This tour is appropriate for ages 7 and up.  I heard a rumor that it made a couple young 6 year olds from another group cry so if you child is extremly sensitive about scary things then you might want to pass.  The area that caused the tears was the police station and without giving anything away, it's the part of the tour where you go inside the station where things might "happen" while you are there.   Even though this made a few little ones cry, this was definitely a favorite part of the tour for our group, aside from the zombies!  >: o

The ghost tour is only happening one more night, October 23 so get on the phone and call or shoot an email to make reservations now.
