Salisbury Ghost Walk fall schedule
8 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights
The Salisbury Ghost Walk will take to the streets each Friday and Saturday in September. Take note that this week’s Friday the 13th tour is filling up fast.
The walk covers a six-block area in down town Salisbury where tales of shadow ghosts, apparitions and orbs will be revealed. Historical facts tell how in the 1800s Salisbury earned the reputation as the “wettest and wickedest” town in the state. Local photos of spirit orbs and apparitions reveal a woman in pink, a soldier on guard duty, and an orb with a familiar face.
Bring a camera, smart phone and flashlight to capture a present day haunt. In 2018 this walk received an award for the “Best Walking tour” in downtown. Cost is $5 for students and $13 for adults; children age 5 and under are free.
