WAKE FOREST — If you’re looking for a “hauntingly” good time this fall season, then don’t miss the “Spirits of Wake Forest” ghost walk in downtown Wake Forest. Presented by Wake Forest Downtown Inc., in conjunction with Forest Moon Theater, these tours will be offered on Thursday, Friday and Saturday through Oct. 30 at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Downtown Wake Forest’s buildings and sidewalks have seen well more than 100 years of history, and they have some spooky stories to tell. Join WFD Inc. and FMT’s cast of storytellers to learn about the tragic train wrecks, murderous mamas and restless spirits that make up just a small piece of downtown’s haunted history. 

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children 10 and under. Tickets must be purchased in advance at Please note: Tickets are non-refundable/non-transferable. Tours will take place rain or shine. Tours are recommended for ages 8 and up, but younger children are welcome at their parents’ discretion. Any attendees under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

Lasting approximately one hour and 15 minutes, each ghost tour will take place in Historic Downtown Wake Forest’s business district, primarily along South White Street. Tour groups will meet outside Wake Forest Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks St., and the ghost walks will begin promptly at the scheduled time. Tours are within the business district only and will not include private residences.

Spirits of Wake Forest is planned and hosted by a volunteer committee, and all proceeds from ticket sales will serve as donations to further the mission of WFD Inc. and FMT. For more information, email program assistant Lynnette Beadle at
