Public Paranormal Investigation

Dates: May 12th & 13th

Over the years the Pioneer Village has had plenty of its own "Ghost Stories" and over the past year we have been working with our spirits around the Village to find out a bit more about them. They have always let us know that they existed and this year has allowed us to explore a bit more into that part of the Village which is always there but not always seen.

This night will be an opportunity for the General Public to come to the Village for a truly rare occasion where we will be investigating a few of the different buildings around the Village and seeing what the spirits want to tell us. The public is not typically allowed in the Village at night and very rarely allowed in the buildings at night so this will be an opportunity to do something which very few people have had the priviledge to do.

Before the event we will be playing some of the EVP's (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) which we have recorded over the past year in the Bullskin Inn. You will also be able to talk with one of our Village members he will be one of the people who will be running the Investigations. We will also have other Village Members there who have been part of the investigations.

This event will be limited to the first 20 people on each night who sign up and we receive their money. After that, registration will be closed and you will have to wait until the next time. This year we have an online registration available although payment will still need to be mailed in at the current time. The online form can be found here.

Since this is a limited event, we will work on keeping the Facebook event and the website up to date on how many people have already signed up.

Due to this being an event at night and the liability of moving around the Village at night, we have to restrict this to an 18 and older event.

Upon receiving your payment and registration form, you will receive an email at the email address listed during registration. On the night of the event all participants will need to sign a liability waiver form. No one will be allowed to investigate without filling out and signing the form.
