It comes with ghosts


10334338_751610088204018_4378596311130350309_nTowards the end of October it seems that everyone has ghosts on their mind. Even for those who do not believe in the paranormal, Halloween turns almost everyone superstitious for one night. This Halloween, you are invited to explore the world of specters and spirits with the Ghost Posse at the Wilbur D. May Museum, 7 p.m. to Midnight.

The Reno-based group of paranormal investigators will give a presentation on their research methods and their findings from years of investigations. Afterward, they will guide guests on an otherworldly examination of the May Museum’s vast collection of ancient artifacts and Rancho San Rafael’s ranch house, built in the 1930s.

The Ghost Posse has previously investigated such historical sites as the Goldfield Hotel, the Yellowjacket Mine in Virginia City, and Bowers Mansion. This exclusive event is limited to 20 people. Guests must be at least 21 years of age. Tickets are on sale now at the museum.

“A Night with the Spirits” happens at the Wilbur D. May Museum, Rancho San Rafael Regional Park, 1595 N. Sierra Street, in Reno. From 7 p.m. to Midnight on Friday, October 31, the event is $60 per person, which includes wine and hors d’oeuvres.

For more information call 775-785-5961 or visit www.maycenter.com.

Located within Rancho San Rafael Regional Park, the Wilbur D. May Center is managed by the Washoe County Community Services Department and continues to receive generous support from the Wilbur May Foundation.
