Ghost Walk returns for 7th year

posted 10.1.12

This year’s Concrete Ghost Walk brings back the spooky every Saturday night in October, delivering an experience that’s “partly historical, sometimes hysterical, and usually more than a little bit creepy,” according to organizers.

Walks will begin at Concrete Theatre at 6 p.m. on Oct. 6, 13, 20, and 27.

During the walk, participants will learn about the characters and events that have shaped Concrete, hear from local residents (living and otherwise), and enjoy a tour along the haunts of Main Street. Walkers should come prepared for October weather, wear sturdy shoes, and bring a flashlight if desired, as the tour includes at least one dark alley and a 45-minute walk.

This year, the Ghost Walk has its own book. A new novel has been released by Mount Vernon author Peter Randolph Keim titled, Hollow Threat: The Curse of the Ghost Walk. The novel features the town of Concrete and its past and present inhabitants. Copies of the book will be available for purchase for $10 each at Concrete Theatre.

The event is limited to those over the age of 13; minors need to be accompanied by an adult. Organizers ask that babies and pets be left at home.

Tickets are $10 each and are available online at For more information, contact Concrete Ghost Walk leader Valerie Stafford at
