Clermont’s Legends by Candlelight Ghost Encounters Tour

Clermont’s Legends by Candlelight Ghost Encounters Tour returns with tours on October’s remaining Fridays and Saturdays. 

Teenagers bringing a Ouija Board to a historic site? What could possibly go wrong?

In this annual event visitors will meet a horde of “ghosts” from Clermont’s past as they tell their stories of glory, loss, success, and failure. Some ghosts may be scary, some may be 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; hand carved by the museum’s staff. Visitors for the ghost encounter should bring their own chair or blanket as none will be provided. As the entire event is outside it is suggested to dress for the weather.

Please note: Unvaccinated visitors should wear a face covering when unable to maintain social distance outdoors.

DATES/TIMES: Fridays and Saturdays, October 22, 23, 29 & 30, 2021
Encounter times: 6pm, 7pm, 8pm
