Historic Downtown Waco Ghost Tour

About
McLennan County Paranormal Investigation's Historic Ghost Walk down Austin Avenue
Mission
To let people experience what life and death was like in a by-gone era
Description
Mclennan County Paranormal Investigations are partnering with the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce, Batteries Plus and Bulbs, and the Affordable Sign Guys to bring to Waco the first ever Historic Ghost Walk down Austin Ave!

It will be held the first Saturday night of each month @ 8 pm starting in June and will run through October with tours in October being held each week. 

The cost will be $20.00 per person and you be at least 12 years of age to participate. Minors MUST be accompanied by the parents or guardians. Tour groups can be no larger than 15 people so if you miss the first one there will be another about 45 minutes to an hour after the group leaves.

We will meet at Ninfa's Mexican Restaurant downtown and proceed to City Hall where we will start the tour. It will be about 2 - 2 1/2 hours long as we will proceed up Austin Ave to 8th street and back down the alleys to our starting point so wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Be sure to bring your cameras and voice recorders if you have them to document any findings you may catch!

We will be covering the history, legends and lore from the late 1800s to the devastating tornado of 1953 along with tales of spirits and ghosts. 

Max 14 people allowed

    So, from what it sounds like, we are meeting at Ninfa's at 8, staying there for a while, and then leaving to get to City Hall by 9:30 for the tour?

    Ok, this is confusing. Can't figure out if I'm Ok to attend or not. If only 14 can go and there are more than that who rsvp'd, whose on the approved list and who is not?

      There's no way I can accept or decline individuals on here. I'd recommend signing up for the second session on the 18th to balance out the groups. Does that make sense? I also can't see who rsvp'ed first or 27th, so if you can't all fit tomorrow night then come to the next one

    If anyone is interested in meeting for dinner at Ninfas at 7:00 let me know so I can get a table big enough.

  • Amy S.

    I would show up if you want to go. There are always some who don't show who say they are going to.

    Jamie, I'm on the www.meetup.com/woodway-wacofriendship/events site and on the right side it shows who is on the list. You're on it with your plus 1. I've also sent an email to our small group giving the same info. See you and Juli tonight! Should be fun.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
