Several story tellers will be on-hand to walk groups through the City Cemetery, behind the old county jail, on Oct. 11, 2003. They will tour in small groups, and the entire stroll will last about 40 to 45 minutes.
Story tellers will be dressed in full costume and ready to tell some spooky stories.
Guests will be guided from station to station, progressing through the cemetery.
Each story teller will have a different ghostly tale to tell.
The tour is not recommended for young children and parents are asked to use their own discretion. “If a child gets scared easy,” said Cathy Taylor, director of White County Library, “you may not want to choose this activity for them.
The pumpkin carving contest will begin at 7 p.m. and
judging will be at 7:30 p.m. The winner will receive $20, and the contest is open to all ages.
The cost of the tour is $5 for ages 11 and above and free for children 10 and under. There is no charge to enter the pumpkin contest.
Because the tour groups are going to be small, it is not necessary for everyone to arrive at 6:30. “The tours will last as long as people are arriving,” said Taylor.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting the library at 836-3613 or can be purchased at the time of the stroll.
