It’s the spooky season: the annual Halloween Ghost Tours are coming back to Fort George this October.

The two-hour tour will take visitors around the haunted fort and includes a visit to the Officers’ Quarters building which is usually off-limits during a regular Ghost Tour.

“There have been hundreds of reports of paranormal sightings at Fort George, ranging from the benevolent spirit of a little girl named Sarah Ann to a more ominous presence simply known as “The Watcher,” Amanda Gamble, Friends of Fort George’s executive director, said in a statement.

Tickets are $25 and must be purchased in advance. Proceeds will go toward supporting summer employment at Fort George and Brock’s Monument.

Halloween Ghost Tours will start on Oct. 11 and will run until Oct. 31. Other available dates are Oct. 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, 30, 31.

Tours run at multiple time slots each evening. Start times are 7:00 p.m., 7:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Tours also start at 10:00 p.m., 10:15 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday only.
