Perhaps you have been wanting to go on a Ghosts of Denton tour and waiting for the right opportunity. The weather is warming up, so you don't have an excuse! There are tours every weekend, but on March 27th you have a special opportunity. Ghosts of Denton is one of many local businesses teaming up with the Greater Denton Arts Council to bring you "Arts All Night."
On Friday, March 27, 6 PM – Saturday, March 28, 9 AM join the party at the Patterson-Appleton Center for the Visual Arts (400 East Hickory St. Denton, TX). There will be music, art, food, prizes, and fun ... along with three opportunities to take a shortened version of a Ghosts of Denton tour.
So how much is that going to cost you? It is all free with donation (suggested minimum donation $10; children under 12 free). Those donations will help the Greater Denton Arts Council keep the arts alive in Denton.
But, I want to tell you about the dead!
So, here is what I am offering:
At 10:00 p.m., MIDNIGHT,and at 2:00 p.m.
LATE NIGHT FRIGHT! THREE different tours ... in the dead of night!
I will be offering a shortened tour at each time, with each getting progressively spookier! I'll share with you some of the places where we have (on the tour) had odd occurrences that cannot be explained. Each tour will include different stories, and no, it's NOT a full tour, yet it will give you a "taste" of the tales. But, it's "first come, first serve" and I can accommodate only thirty people on each tour.
We will be starting from the very haunted Visual Arts Center and return there at the end of the tour. That means you should wear your walking shoes! Ladies, those high heels will kill ya, and I don't need any more ghosts on the tour! Back at the Visual Arts Center, you can turn in your wristband for a chance to win a copy of Ghosts of Denton ... The History of the Mysteries in a Small Texas Town.
It's only available to those who attend Arts All Night ... and there is no extra charge for the tour.
Here is your chance to find out what Ghosts of Denton tours are like ... and support the arts in Denton at the same time. Be there!
[Note: If you are not a night owl, there will be a regular Ghosts of Denton tour at 8:00 p.m. on the 27th starting from Jupiter House Coffee. For that, you must have reservations, and you can make them here.]
