Welcome, brave souls, to a realm where history and mystery intertwine and where the past echoes through the present. As the moon casts its eerie glow upon streets of Downtown Fuquay, we invite you to step into a world beyond the ordinary, where whispers of the supernatural can possibly be heard.
Some places you’ve visited before may be haunted and you didn’t know it! So, join Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association and Fuquay-Varina Ghosts @FVGhosts for the 2023 Ghost Tours and prepare to be regaled with tales of old and new ghostly experiences in the downtown area, culminating with a walk to presumably haunted sites! You will be entertained with an overview of ghostly activities by an expert guide as you walk the streets learning paranormal stories gathered from the people who live and work right here in Fuquay-Varina.
Whether you’re a skeptic seeking to challenge your convictions or a true believer, our Ghost Tours offer an unforgettable exploration of the unexplained events in Downtown Fuquay.
So, gather your courage, join us under the moon’s watchful gaze, and step into the realm where reality blurs with the beyond. The tales are waiting, the spirits are restless, and the adventure is about to begin…
