Founded in 1857, Downtown Emporia has a quite a history and some spooky tales to discover. Take a tour by flashlight of some of downtown's lesser known or normally off-limits spaces.

Snag a ticket for $10 for an opportunity to visit 6 spooky locations in Emporia (mostly downtown). Each tour is about 10-15 minutes and done in groups under 20 people. All ticket holders must meet at Emporia Main Street at 727 before the first tour starts at 9pm. The last tour starts at 11:30 pm

This year is going to look a little different.

Flint Hills Paranormal is conducting investigations at the the 6 locations on the tour. Ticket holders will be given access to view footage from each location prior to the tours.
