Ghost hunter to share tales of terror in Edmonds

Do you believe in ghosts? Paranormal researcher Neil McNeill does, and he’ll share his findings on “Devil’s Night,” the night before Halloween.

“The Ghost Story: History, Mystery and Magic” promises to make a believer out of you with historical and local tales of terror on this night when the worldly and other-worldly tend to cross paths. (And it’s not just kids soaping windows and dumping over trashcans).

You can share your own ghostly encounters and unexplained mysteries at the session.

The event takes place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday* at the Edmonds Conference Center.

McNeill has been studying paranormal phenomena for about 20 years and was once lead investigator for the Washington State Ghost Society. (Bet you didn’t know we had one.)

He’s a member of the international Parapsychological Association, the Rhine Research Institute and the Seattle Consciousness Education and Research Society.

The event costs $25. Call 425-640-1243 or email artsnow@edcc.edu to register for this event.

The Edmonds Conference Center is at 201 Fourth Ave N., Edmonds.

Correction, Oct. 29, 2013: An earlier version of this article listed an incorrect date for the event.
