sponsored by The Greater Limestone County Chamber of
Commerce, will intrigue visitors with tales of paranormal
activity in residences and buildings.
Storyteller Shane Black will delight the
group with lore and history as they stroll throughout
Athens’ historic district. The 90-minute walk will entertain
both believers and non-believers. In the tranquility of the
night Shane will share the details of the “
"Tales of Athens”.
“Will you see a spirit, poltergeist, or ghost? Who knows?
It’s an unforgettable haunted evening of spooky fun for all
ages. This is a story telling tour, not a haunted house.
Nothing is staged and no one will jump out and try to scare
you. If anything happens on your tour, it is truly
paranormal in nature. This is our alternative for
celebrating Halloween without scaring the children or
causing nightmares. Join us for the adventure and see what
happens!” said Tourism Director Jeanette Dunnavant.
