Are you ready for Halloween? Ghouls and ghostly apparitions abound this time of year and if you need any help getting into the spirit Madison Ghost Tours has you covered.
For the last several years the group has organized tour groups around Capitol Square. From their website: "Discover the haunted history of Madison, Wisconsin with our 90-minute ghost walk around the state’s capitol. You can expect to meet the colorful characters, vengeful spirits, monsters, and stories of the people who love Madison so much that even death can’t stop them from staying in the city!"
The tour will take you from the Great Dane on Doty St., full of stories passed from former employees and management, past the Majestic Theatre where a strange figure has frequented the balcony for decades. You'll pass the Capitol building, and other Madison downtown staples. You may even get to learn about the strange Mendota Monster. In all, the tour will last between 90 minutes and 2 hours and treat you to some great bits of our unique local history. It's a great experience for lovers of Madison, history junkies, and of course all of you ghost hunters that come out this time of year.
Tickets are still available for Halloween weekend. They can be found here.
