Downtown Topeka Ghost Tour September 13th 8PM
The first and still one of the best! The Downtown Topeka Ghost Tour offers a history lesson of Topeka and the haunts associated with them. The Kansas State Capitol Building is majestic indeed! I suppose it would have to be considering the death cloud that hangs over its existence! Angst in the Alleys and Brains in the basement seems appropriately named for this tour. Jayhawk Hotel and Theater create a partnership of paranormal mayhem. Be sure to check out the full apparition of a bum that was captured during a Downtown Tour in the alley of Jayhawk by a tour guest. Maybe you can be as lucky during this get out stop. The Pit, Topeka State Hospital Grounds is a must on this tour. South Kansas Avenue seems to be plagued with a paranormal epidemic, Field of Greens, The Break Room, Hazel Hill and 3-Flower's Metaphysical Treasures, just to name a few. The Downtown Topeka Ghost Tour departs from Celtic Fox Restaurant at 8th and Jackson in Topeka, Kansas
PLEASE REMEMBER TO PRINT OUT YOUR CONFIRMATION PAGE. GTK DOES NOT MAIL TICKETS.
Join us during the day for our Spirits for the Spirited; Paws and the Paranormal Conference and receive a discount on the ghost tour!
