Virtual Halloween Stories Will Shock Your Senses In Utica/Rome
We can't get enough of Halloween this year, and the festivities start Friday at 6 PM with spooky tales. Join the Haunted History Trail of New York State's Facebook page for virtual storytime.
You don't have to leave your home to celebrate All Hallows Eve. The coronavirus is scary enough for some ghosts and goblins. No fear, you'll get a spooky experience with the I LOVE NY Halloween Spooktacular live on Facebook at 6 PM, Friday, October 30, 2020. Pop some popcorn and gather round to experience haunted attractions from the Haunted History Trail safely at home.
Tune into Facebook for fun and scary Halloween stories with CasperCops from Haunted Sylvan Beach Amusement Park, a special reading of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and much more.
Selina Andersson from My Family Travels reports those participating in the 1-hour special include:
- Sharon Coyle, the Proprietress of the Rolling Hills Asylum in East Bethany, NY.
- James Pendal, founder of CasperCops and host of the Park After Dark Sylvan Beach Ghost Tours.
- Bonnie Hays will give insight about Historic Palmyra, known as “the most haunted place in the Finger Lakes.”
- Jonathan Kruk, the Master Storyteller Historic Hudson Valley, will share some stories as well.
