Where the River Turns a Thousand Chilling Tales

Kick off the Halloween season on October 14th at the Ghost Storytelling Festival right here in Cape Girardeau! Nationally renowned storytellers Regina Carpenter and Gayle Ross will regale you with eerie, family friendly stories on the banks of the Mississippi River beneath the boughs of the old Beech Tree at the River Campus. The setting could not be more ideal, so bring some cozy blankets and a lawn chair or two for this fantastic fall event! Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better…..kettle corn and hot apple cider will be available for purchase!

The event starts at 7 p.m. and will go until 9:30 p.m with a 15 minute intermission around 8. Tickets are $10 for adults, and children 12 and under are free. Children must be accompanied by a paying adult, and no more than 5 free children per adult, please. In case of inclement weather, the event will take place at the RoseTheater on the main campus of SoutheastMissouriStateUniversity. Call the Cape Girardeau Convention and Visitors Bureau for tickets at 573-335-1631, and check out CapeStorytelling.com for more details.
