Ghost Hunting and More Coming to Hampton This Saturday
If getting freaked out by legit horrors and haunts like Ouija boards and conjuring ghosts is your thing, then this is 100% in your wheelhouse!
SeacoastOnline.com is reporting that this coming Saturday night (October 24) at 7pm, there is going to be a massive Halloween "celebration" in Hampton at the James House on Towle Farm Road.
And if what I'm reading is right, this is going to be like something straight out of "Paranormal Activity" and "Ghost Hunters."
The event, according to SeacoastOnline.com, is being put on by Spirit Chasers Paranormal and is literally going to be a smorgasbord of spooky/Halloweenish-themed stuff, which means there should be at least SOMETHING for everyone, no matter whether you do scary or not.
For example, I have some friends that aren't big on frights, so they'd be able to experience a Tarot card reading and maybe find out they're going to become a billionaire in the next 10 years or something. Or maybe you're more down to connect with a passed on loved one -- part of the event, per the article, will feature a gallery reading, so you could possibly connect with who you're missing most. Toss in the fact that (draught-permitting) there will be campfires, marshmallows, and hot cider and cocoa, and you don't have to be down with the demons to have fun at this event.
BUT, if the scary parts of Halloween IS your thang, this is also right up your alley. On top of all the non-fright stuff I just mentioned, there's also going to be seances that you can participate in, a ghost walk around the property, and an actual ghost hunt of the James House itself, according to Seacoastonline.com.
I feel like this is one of those catch-22's for me personally -- I'm a sucker for horror/thriller type stuff, but I'm also so insanely paranoid that I'd be nervous somehow a spirit we came across would just haunt me forever. But at the same time, the thought of maybe coming across a spirit and feeling the energy from it/them is SO intriguing and sounds so cool! But again, also horrifying.
As a heads up, SeacoastOnline.com says this is an 18+ event and will follow COVID-19 guidelines, which includes signing a COVID-19 waiver as well as remaining socially distant and wearing masks. There's a $25 entrance fee and pre-registration is required -- hook that up by e-mailing Willy Hassell at firstname.lastname@example.org (insert corny/creepy "IF YOU DARE!" here).
