- THINGS TO DO
Join us for a unique experience that’s partly historical, sometimes hysterical and usually more than a little bit creepy. The Concrete Ghost Walk takes place every Saturday night in October , beginning at the historic Concrete Theatre, in Town Center at 6:00 p.m.
Learn about the characters and events that have shaped our spirited community, hear from local residents (living and otherwise) and enjoy a tour along the haunts of Main Street.
Please come prepared to walk — dress for the October weather, wear sturdy shoes, and bring a flashlight if desired, as the tour includes at least one dark alley.
Participants must be at least 13 years old and minors need to be accompanied by an adult. Please note: this is not a typical “haunted house” type activity; it requires walking, standing, listening quietly. Plan accordingly when including younger people, and do everyone a huge favor: please leave babies and pets at home. This is not a safe or enjoyable event for them! (Did we mention we sometimes lose a Ghost Walk participant along the way? Eek!)
Beginning in September, you can also make reservations by visiting the Concrete Chamber office, located in the East County Community Resource Center, or by sending a check to the Concrete Chamber, PO Box 743, Concrete WA 98237. Please include the date you wish to attend, and allow sufficient time for your check to arrive.
Want more info? Check out the book by Mount Vernon author, Peter Randolph Keim, titled, “Hollow Threat: The Curse of the Ghost Walk.” You should read it before attending, or plan to buy a copy at the event, if you survive.
The Concrete Ghost Walk is a team effort by the Concrete Chamber of Commerce, Concrete Heritage Museum, Concrete Herald and Concrete Theatre. For more details, please contact Ghost Walk leader Valerie Stafford.
