If you're not familiar with the New England Para Fest, I wasn't either, and am actually stumbling upon it near the end of this annual event that's in its sixth year.
According to the Essex County Ghost Project, it's filled with lots of events every year that of course are all about that great beyond. Obviously, some of us are all about ghosts and truly believe, while others remain skeptical. I think I believe, then other times I'm like "no way", so I'm definitely a fence-walker on this topic.
No matter how you feel, I'd say we're all enamored with ghosts and the paranormal. I think most of us want to believe, however, being human, we like proof and find it helpful.
Anyway, maybe Saturday night, April 30, you will find the proof you're looking for, or at the very least have fun.
There's a ghost hunt at Hilldale Cemetery, according to Wavelengths. It's part of this New England Para Fest, and starts at 7:30 at the Hilldale Cemetery in Haverhill, Massachusetts, which is about 30 minutes southwest of Dover and just over the New Hampshire line. Gates to the cemetery open at 7 and of course, Wavelengths recommends you wear comfy shoes and make sure you have a coat or sweatshirt, since it gets chilly.
I think it gets chillier when there's a ghost around, too. At least that's how the movies show it.
And here's a very cool part about this ghost hunt: the tickets are just $10 per person and the proceeds go to the Hilldale Cemetery restoration fund, which focuses mostly on veterans' gravestones.
