Teenagers, Inc of Chestnut Hill is sponsoring the region’s favorite Halloween tradition – The Annual Ghost Walk on Saturday, October 29th at 6:30pm. In its 16th year, the Ghost Walk features live storytellers at various locations in Chestnut Hill. Featured storytellers include Vernyce Dannells, Claudia Lees, Loretta Lucy Miller and Denise Valentine who have amazing and fascinating storytelling backgrounds. Each will haunt guests with their scary, but child-friendly, tales amidst dark locations in Chestnut Hill such as the grounds of St.Paul’s Episcopal Church, Chestnut Hill Library, and various historic (potentially haunted) houses of Chestnut Hill. Eerie tales by the storytellers will include some Chestnut Hill ghosts, unusual spirit activity as well as spirits roaming in families’ histories.
“This year our storytellers are better than ever,” says Maryann Dwyer, President of Teenagers, Inc. “The historic ambiance of Chestnut Hill makes this a perfect setting for the Ghost Walk!”
