Concrete Theatre

 

14th Annual Concrete Ghost Walk
Take a walk on the wild side!
Saturdays in October 2019, at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Tickets aren’t available at the door.

The event often sells out, so please purchase well in advance.




 

What if the famous ghosts of Concrete could talk?! Wouldn't it be fun to hear about their lives, deaths, and the reason they still hang around our town?! Now you can!

You're invited to join us for a unique experience that’s historical, sometimes slightly hysterical and always entertaining and thought-provoking!


Are these characters really haunting our businesses and buildings?  Is there more to their story than we know from reading about them in the history books and newspapers? 


Join us in October and you’ll get to learn about the characters, events and legends that have shaped our community, and you'll hear from local residents (living and otherwise) as you enjoy a guided tour along the haunts of Main Street.


The Concrete Ghost Walk takes place every year in October -- we're pleased to say this is the 14th year, thanks to our generous and spirited volunteers from the Concrete Chamber and the Concrete Heritage Museum, as well as dozens of others in the community who support the event.


PLANNING TO ATTEND?

• Participants must be at least 16 years old and minors must be accompanied by an adult.

• No kids, no pets, no babies. Sorry, no exceptions.

• This is not a "haunted house" type activity (no one will grab you!); it isn't a paranormal investigation (we aren’t looking for orbs and apparitions, although you might see them!), and it’s more than a history tour. It requires walking, standing, listening quietly to ghost stories.

• It's a safe enjoyable event for adults interested in history, entertainment, and the possibility of life beyond the grave.

  1. If you have questions about the walk, please contact your Fearless Ghost Guide, Valerie Stafford.

It's an evening of murder and mayhem! You'll hear true stories of crimes in Skagit and Whatcom Counties during the early twentieth century. Everything from public hangings, husbands killing wives, wives killing husbands, and strangers coming to town. Filled with intrigue and rich, true history, this is a glimpse into the darker side of humanity, all from the safety of your theatre seat.


Presented by Todd Warger, the author of several true crime books, including "Murder and Mayhem in the Fourth Corner."


Todd is an Emmy Award-winning nominee for the documentary film The Mountain Runners, and a recipient of the Washington State Historical Societys David Douglas. He lives in Bellingham and is on the staff of the Whatcom Museum.
