Legends by Candlelight Ghost Encounters at Clermont

The highlight of Clermont’s fall season is back. Legends by Candlelight Ghost Encounters will take place on the next four Fridays and Saturdays, October 16, 17, 23 and 24.

Guests will find themselves at a special lecture given by Clermont’s curator when something goes wrong and the spirits of the house are released. Ghosts will emerge from Clermont to tell their stories of love, loss, success and failure. Some ghosts are scary, and some are funny, but all the stories they tell are true!

Visitors will be seated on the lawn of Clermont surrounded by the flickering specters of Jack-o’-lanterns. Please bring your own lawn chair and/or blanket, and since it will be outdoors, be sure to dress for the weather.
