Concordia Cemetery Ghost Tour
June 5, 2021
9:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Perfect for those who seek paranormal activity
Here’s an idea for very unusual Date Nights. Head on over to the Concordia Cemetery and take part in their popular Ghost Tours. According to their website, there are “over 60,000 souls resting within its walls” and noted as “literally a city of the dead… with a host of ghosts-in-residence. Some of the spirits are said to include the fascinating Lady Flo (‘the lady in white’) as well as the notorious Old West gunslinger John Wesley Hardin.”
Those who are more in-tune to paranormal activity have talked about “unexplained sounds such as the hoofbeats of horses or the laughter of children have been reported coming from the cemetery at night.”
Here’s more insight and you can learn more at https://www.ghosts915.org/. “Bring your cameras and become the Ghost Hunter as you learn about the history, mystery, and lore of this historic landmark. Meet at the Yandell entrance to the cemetery at 8:30pm. Ages 10 and up. Children MUST be accompanied by an adult over 21. Proceeds to benefit Concordia Cemetery for preservation and restoration purposes. The Paso Del Norte Paranormal Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit.”
