For the 29th consecutive year, ART Station will produce A Tour of Southern Ghosts, the “spooktacular” story-telling festival hosted by Stone Mountain Park. Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening between October 10-26, Stone Mountain Park’s Antebellum Plantation is the setting for this unique event that celebrates the delightful Southern tradition of telling incredible stories about ghosts, spirits, phantoms, specters, ghouls and other apparitions.
“A Tour of Southern Ghosts is the perfect family outing for a lovely fall evening – right in time to get in the mood for Halloween,” says David Thomas, President and Artistic Director of ART Station. “Join us at this bewitching time of the year for a ghost tour that features fun and spooky ghost stories from the Antebellum South that are suitable for all ages. Along the lantern-lit paths of one of the South’s most authentic – and spookiest! – plantation, you’ll meet six professional storytellers (alternating nightly) who will share their ‘real Southern’ ghost stories. It makes for a great Atlanta family tradition – and it is only here that you will experience the real Southern Boo Y’all!”
This year’s “A Tour of Southern Ghosts” features stories that run the gamut of the “ghost story” tradition. The stories range from the “so scary” to the “that’s really funny” type of ghost story. Come out to “A Tour of Southern Ghosts” and hear the antics of our favorite friends (ghosts) during this bewitching season of the year. This years cast includes: Fracena Byrd, Katrina Despain, David Hirt, Nancy Knight, Theresa O’Shea, Lake Roberts, Angelica Spence, Sierra Swann, Lester Thomas & Tracy Walker.
