While Fort George National Historic Site in Niagara-on-the-Lake is open on Sundays from April through November, this coming weekend will be the biggest of the year.
It is the only time the fort, which played a key role in the War of 1812, is open for five consecutive days for their Halloween Ghost Tours.
“Some believe that Halloween is the time of year when supernatural forces are most powerful, and the barrier between this world and the next is at its weakest. For others, it’s just the perfect time of year for a good ghost story. Join us for an exploration of the scariest aspects of haunted Fort George,” staffers said of the scary weekend.
The Ghost Tours will be hitting the old fort on Oct. 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31 at 8:30 p.m. as “soldiers” lead visitors by candlelight through the eerie grounds.
With spirits all over Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of the prettiest towns in Canada, the most prevalent tales of paranormal activity surround Fort George National Historic Site.
“There have been hundreds of reports of paranormal sightings at Fort George, ranging from the benevolent spirit of a little girl named Sarah Ann to a more ominous presence simply known as ‘The Watcher’.”
