Some believe that Halloween is a time when supernatural forces are most powerful, and the barrier between this world and the next is weakest. For others, it's just the perfect time for a lively ghost story. Join us as we explore the scariest aspects of Fort George in the most haunted town in Canada! This 2-hour candlelit walking tour includes frightening stories to spook even the bravest of souls and a special haunting visit to the Officers' Quarters.
