The 1727 French Castle and historic military grounds at Old Fort Niagara will creep with ghosts, ghouls and haunts on Saturdays, October 17 & 24, starting at 7pm, for the annual "Haunted Fortress." Tickets are $20 per person and available by presale only be calling 716-745-7611 between 9am and 5pm.
"This unique experience at the fort is a popular attraction that sells out fast," remarked Robert Emerson, Old Fort Niagara's Executive Director. "It is also our largest fundraiser for our educational programs. We look forward to scaring the living daylights out of our guests!"
The event offers visitors a nocturnal tour of the fort, complete with ghosts from the fort's violent past. Visitors can also linger by the bonfire and hear true stories of unexplained supernatural sightings on the fort grounds. As a finale, fort volunteers will offer tours of the post's graveyard which dates back to 1755.
