Description: Strathearn Historical Park & Museum presents its annual Halloween historical tour, which tells the history of Simi Valley through the device of actors portraying the ghosts of the dead. This is a family-friendly event, appropriate for all ages, not a scary haunted house. Essentially, you will be guided through the park grounds to different historical settings, where you will stop to hear monologues or see short scenes enacted, with the emphasis on history, not horror. There is little spooky about the event except that the characters have come back from the grave to tell their stories at night.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for children 6-10; no charge for children 5 and under.
Tours include 20-25 people on a first-come, first-served basis, departing every ten minutes or so, on the following nights: October 11-13, 13-20, 25-27. Hours are 7-pm on Fridays, 6-9pm on Saturdays, and 6-8:30pm on Sundays.
You will have to walk through the park at night, standing and listening as the ghosts tell their stories (wheelchairs and strollers can be accommodated).
No flashlights, flash photography, or sound recording are allowed inside the park.
