Halloween: Beyond Franklin Street

Halloween: Beyond Franklin Street

Halloween: Beyond Franklin Street

Scranton, PA — I must admit it: I’m not part of the Halloween scene on Franklin Street. It’s for the young folk. But there’s still plenty to do in and around Scranton for Halloween.

Haunted Scranton

Friday October 25, 2013 & Saturday October 26, 2013
7 PM

It makes sense that a town with a college founded in 1789 would have a few ghosts. Hear them speak in the Old Scranton Cemetery with Voices from the Grave, presented by the Scranton Historical Society.

Tour the Old Scranton Cemetery by candlelight and be visited by spirits from beyond the grave! $15 per person. Reservations required. Flashlight and walking shoes recommended.
