Washington Park East Cemetery is the backdrop for the spookiest night of the season. Storytelling Arts of Indiana’s “ghost stories” have quickly become a tradition and one of the city’s most iconic fall events. Seven Hoosier storytellers will tell thrilling stories to guests in a tent or under the stars on Saturday, October 15 at 7:30 p.m. It’s affordable fall fun the whole family can enjoy.
Guests can mark out their places with blankets and lawn chairs on the beautiful cemetery grounds, with plenty of room for all. Although carrying alcohol is prohibited, customers are encouraged to bring drinks and snacks or purchase them from one of the on-site food trucks. Beer and wine will also be on sale.
As night falls, professional storytellers will share urban legends, literary tales and folk tales. The stories are all appropriate for school-aged children. Adults will love them too.
