You’re about to get haunted in the city of Fenton.

 The fourth annual Fenton Historic Ghost Walk will feature entirely new haunted tales Friday and Saturday, Oct. 18-19 in this unique collaboration between the Fenton Village Players and the Fenton Historical Society.

 “Our Ghost Walk gives guests an opportunity to hear stories about the ghosts that still haunt the Fenton community,” said Bev Tippett, co-chairperson with Toadie Middleton. “Hear tales, past and present, of spirits while walking in Fenton’s historic district.”

 Guests will be led by a pair of hauntingly knowledgeable guides who will share information about Fenton along the way. At each stop, ghostly characters will share their story.  

 While this sounds scary, the Ghost Walk is actually a walk that combines heritage, folklore and stories about ghosts of Fenton.

 The Ghost Walk is about one mile in length, so organizers suggest that guests wear comfortable footwear, bring water to drink and carry a flashlight.

 The tour begins at the A.J. Phillips Fenton Museum, Fenton Historical Museum, 310 S. LeRoy St., beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are sold for a specific time and will leave every 15 minutes. 

 Nearly 50 community members volunteer to help with the event, said Tippett. The First Presbyterian Church of Fenton provides the final stop with refreshments and music.

 Tickets are $12 (up to two hours before the event) and $15 at the door, if still available. “Past tours have sold out so guests are encouraged to buy their tickets early,” Tippett said.

 Limited tickets are available at The UPS Store in Silver Lake Village, Fenton’s Open Book in downtown Fenton and online at
