BURGAW – Tickets are on sale now for the award-winning Ghost Walk: Ghosts of Pender’s Past, a haunting tour in Historic Burgaw. Tickets may be purchased at the temporary Pender County Tourism office, 805 S. Walker St., Burgaw 28425. Tickets may also be ordered via phone with a credit card by calling 910-259-1278.
Ghost Walk: Ghosts of Pender’s Past returns Oct. 11-12 with two shows each night, at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 per adult; students ages 6-17 are $5 each; children under the age of 5 are admitted free with an adult.
Each year the ghost walk is a sell-out event. Tickets are limited.
“We encourage visitors to purchase tickets in advance,” said Tammy Proctor, Pender County tourism director. “We hate to turn people away on the night of the shows.”
“Again, we have new ghost stories,” said Stephanie Key, the art director of the ghost walk. “Two of our stories feature films shot in Burgaw – Silver Bullet and I Know What You Did Last Summer. I’m sure there will be a werewolf or two roaming the streets of Burgaw.”
Ghost Walk: Ghosts of Pender’s Past is a collaborative effort of volunteers from Pender County Historical Society, Historical Society of Topsail Island, Poplar Grove Plantation, Pender Arts Council, Moores Creek National Battlefield, the Town of Burgaw, and the Pender County Library.
“Ghost Walk is the recipient of national awards from the National Association of Counties and Southeastern Travel Society,” said Key. “We have wonderful volunteers who make this annual, award-winning event possible.”
