As dark falls upon downtown Pleasanton at the end of October you’re likely to catch a glimpse of the spooky spirits that call Main Street home. Museum on Main announces the annual Ghost Walk, a two-hour guided tour of Pleasanton’s most haunted sites along Main Street in the downtown area.
This family-friendly tour, held for over twelve years, continues to be a popular event during the Halloween season and the museum expects this year to be no different. Approximately 1,200 people join in Ghost Walk each year, with all the tour times selling out in advance. Most of the attendees are adults from all around the Bay Area, but children also attend and have a great time.
With a volunteer team of ghost hosts to lead groups and actors playing the roles of the various ghosts around town, Ghost Walk is a very unique event. Executive Director, Jim DeMersman notes, “Ghost Walk has successfully brought the haunted side of Pleasanton to ‘life’ through the stories and experiences collected from psychics, ghost hunters, and shop workers over the years. Ghost Walk is more spooky than it is scary. It’s not a haunted house type of program where people jump out to scare you.”
The museum is also proud to announce the return of teen improves students from the City of Pleasanton’s Creatures of Impulse. DeMersman said, “The improv team is a great addition to Ghost Walk. They are so fun playing the many roles of the downtown ghosts and we are pleased they will be back again this year.”
Tours depart the museum every 30 minutes between the hours of 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Friday, October 18th, Saturday, October 19th, Friday, October 25th, and Saturday, October 26th.
Ghost Walk tours take place rain or shine – so dress appropriately. Costumes are highly encouraged!
