DCCA announces Ghost Walk Tour Guides and Actors

Darke County Center for the Arts' annual Ghost Walk, a fundraiser celebrating the Halloween season, will take place on Friday, October 27, Saturday, October 28, and Sunday, October 29. Costumed tour guides will lead participants to numerous haunted sites in downtown Greenville, including several stops where actors will portray characters involved in the ghostly tales. Tour guides include Michael Bitner, Marilyn Delk, Keith Rawlins, Jaime Stocksdale, and David Warner. John Burkett, Karen Burkett, Shanna Camacho, Jana Deeter, Larry Delk, Kianna Dishman, Maxwell Jordan, Nick Kolb, Jan Roestamadji, and Heather Voisard are the actors who will share spooky stories at some of the spots visited on the tour. The Ghost Walk will leave from Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall at 7:30 p.m. each evening, and last at least an hour and a half. Greenville Masonic Lodge #143 Craft Club will be serving refreshments at Memorial Hall before and after the event.
 
“I can't think of a better way to celebrate Halloween weekend than by taking a fun, spooky, and informative walk in downtown Greenville,” said DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan. “The stories can give you chills, but are still not too scary for children old enough to enjoy a long walk in the dark,” Ms. Jordan continued. The stories told during the Ghost Walk are based on tales collected by Arcanum-area resident Rita Arnold who has published several volumes recounting spooky happenings within Darke County and beyond.
 
Ms. Jordan also reminds potential Ghost Walk participants that some tour sites include uneven terrain and may be located in dimly lighted areas. As in years past, Ghost Walk will be held regardless of weather conditions; if seriously inclement weather occurs, the stories will be told indoors.
 
Tickets for the Ghost Walk cost $10, and are available at Greenville Public Library, as well as at Ann’s Gifts, Readmore's Hallmark, and Darke County Visitors Bureau Welcome Center in downtown Greenville; tickets will also be sold at the door. Tickets may be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or dcca@centerforarts.com, or purchased online at www.centerforarts.net.
