Description: The Strathearn Historical Park & Museum resurrects its annual Halloween Ghost Tour, in which the souls of the departed return to regale the living with tales of the history of Simi Valley. This is an outdoor tour of historical buildings, with actors in character performing vignettes; this is not a haunted house with monsters trying to scare you. In the darkness of the park at night, the effect is slightly moody but you are more likely to hear screams of laughter than of fear, and the material completely appropriate for children of all ages.

Starting every fifteen minutes, the hour-and-a-half walking tours offer limited seating at a few stops. The tour can accommodate wheelchairs and strollers.

Tours are limited to 20-25 people, on a first-come-first-served basis. Reservations can be made for groups of ten or more.

No flashlights or photography are allowed of the tour.

Dates: October 12-14, 19-21, 26-28 (no show on Halloween night)

Hours: 7-10pm Fridays, 6-10pm Saturdays, 6-9pm Sundays

Admission: $10.00 (no charge for children under 5). Free parking is available along Strathearn Place.
