Spirits of Pleasanton’s Past Come Alive At Museum on Main’s Annual Ghost Walk
 
As dark falls upon downtown Pleasanton at the end of October you’re likely to catch a glimpse of the spooky spirits that call Main Street home.  Museum on Main announces the annual Ghost Walk, which this year will be held virtually, on October 16, 17, 23, 24, and 31 at 7pm. This year, our popular guided walking tour is moving to Zoom! Two ghosts hosts will be live on Zoom to guide your virtual tour of downtown Pleasanton's most haunted locations. Ghosts, portrayed by professional actors this year, will visit participants' screens and share more of their site's history and hauntings!  “This family-friendly tour, held for over thirteen years, is a staple of the Halloween season and we can't wait to bring it to you in the comfort of your home! Although this year will be a little bit different because of Covid-19, we still expect our virtual Ghost Walk to be a popular event, so we are recommending you get your tickets now,” notes Sarah Schaefer, Director of Education at the Museum on Main.

Participants will also be emailed a Ghost Walk companion e-book with recipes for spooky snacks and treats as well as Halloween themed cocktails and mocktails. The goal of the e-book is to help participants get in the Ghost Walk spirit at home. The e-book will also have more about the history of Ghost Walk and tips for ghost hunters.

Ghost Walk has successfully brought the haunted side of Pleasanton to ‘life’ through the stories and experiences collected from psychics, ghost hunters, and shop workers over the years.  Ghost Walk is spookier than it is scary. “It’s not a haunted house type of program where people jump out to scare you. This has been true of our in-person Ghost Walk and will continue to be true this year when the Ghost Walk is virtual on Zoom,” notes Schaefer. However, this year we will be adding an additional Ghost Walk related program in early November for those looking for a little bit more of a ghost hunting experience. Local ghost hunters will be leading investigations into haunted locations downtown. The virtual program will bring their findings and techniques to participants. Stay tuned to the museum’s social media for more information about our ghost hunting virtual program!

Tours begin at 7:00 pm on Zoom. The cost is $15 per screen and is not transferable to multiple screens. All tickets must be purchased online and must include the email you would like us to send the Zoom invite to.  Tickets are non-refundable and since it is virtual, tours happen rain or shine!
