Haunting since 1992, the Ghost Walk Riverside is a community-oriented event with a block-party atmosphere, located in a downtown area loaded with local eateries. The centerpiece of the event is the “Ghost Walk” – a series of five tours to prominent buildings in the area (morgue, courtroom, etc), where local high school drama students stage mini-plays with ghastly, ghostly, and ghoulish plots. There are multiple tour options: some family-friendly; others creepier (identified as G or PG). Befitting the familial atmosphere, the scares are relatively mild. But watch out: after the plays are over, the ghouls show little interest in letting you walk away; they will pursue you as you head to the next location.
The event includes live entertainment, a kids carnival, souvenir stands, food vendors, Tombstone Trolley, and the Dark Dreams Doorway.
Ghost Walk Riverside takes place in downtown Riverside. Tours depart from the Main Street Pedestrian Mall.
Note: This is a rain-or-shine event.
