Friday night will be a little bit spooky in downtown Woodstock. Elm Street Arts will kick off its annual Ghost Tales and Trails series tonight and Sat. Oct. 19-20 and Oct. 26-27.
Tickets are $11 for adults, $6 for children ages 12 and under if purchased online in advanced. Prices at door are $13 for adults and $8 for children.
The event will be held at the Chambers at City Center at 8534 Main Street in downtown Woodstock and group tours will occur at 7 p.m., 7:45 p.m., 8:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.
Gay Grooms, artistic director of Elm Street Arts, said some slots are still available for those who are interested in participating in the tour.
Grooms noted the organization has no set amount of money it would like to raise
"It's really just something that's neat," she said. "It's different from the things we normally do. It's much more personable."
This year, the program will have different storytellers who will muse about the city's history at various locations throughout the main floor of the chambers. If weather permits, Grooms said they could also incorporate story telling on the steps of the original Woodstock Community Church structure.
Stories this Friday and Saturday will be told by Mark Twain, Joe Lemmo, Hannah Schug, Jessica Williams and G. L. Grooms. Next week's installment of story tellers will include Texas Red, Jason Wilson, Amy McGraw, Hannah Schug and Jessica Williams.
