GHOST STORIES Come to Washington Park East Cemetery

Washington Park East Cemetery is the backdrop for the spookiest night of the season. Storytelling Arts of Indiana's "Ghost Stories" has quickly become a tradition and one of the most iconic fall events in the city. Seven Hoosier storytellers will spin spine-tingling tales for guests under a tent or the stars on Saturday, October 15 at 7:30 p.m. It's affordable fall fun the entire family can enjoy.

Guests can stake out their spots with blankets and lawn chairs on the stunning grounds of the cemetery, with plenty of room for all. While carry-in alcohol is prohibited, guests are welcome to bring drinks and snacks or buy them from one of the food trucks onsite. Beer and wine will also be for sale.

When it gets dark, professional storytellers will share urban legends, literary tales and folktales. The stories are all appropriate for school-aged children. Adults will love them too.
