Spirits' Soiree


This time of year, the ghost tours in the Quarter are not just for tourists. Today, the Friends of the Cabildo announced details for their popular Ghostly Tours and their 5th Annual Hostly Gallivant fundraiser.

By Elizabeth Davas

Witches Brew Tours is offering aspiring Spenglers, Stantz’, and Venkmans a chance to hunt the ghosts themselves. The company recently added the “Ghost Hunt” tour to their repertoire. Instead of listening to guides’ tales of horror, visitors can use various pieces of equipment designed to pick up and channel the other side.
