The popular Salisbury Ghost Walk
Take to the streets Friday and Saturday night at 8 p.m. with the Salisbury Ghost Walk, which covers a six block area downtown, and hear tales of shadow ghosts, apparitions and orbs. Historical facts tell how in the 1800s Salisbury earned the reputation as the “wettest and wickedest” town in the state. Be sure to bring your camera, smart phone and a flashlight because some of the tales will come to life via present day haunts. $5 for students and $10 for adults. Children age 5 and under are free.
