HAUNTED MANITOBA FROM HOME
The cold weather and the COVID restrictions mean now is not the time for an outdoor ghost walk. Instead, we have decided to bring the ghost stories indoors. As part of Safe at Home Manitoba, Winnipeg Ghost Walk will be hosting spooky presentations online, that you can enjoy from the comfort of your living room.
The event will be hosted by Matthew Komus, author of Haunted Winnipeg and Haunted Manitoba. Matthew will host three nights of scary stories, gathered from all across Manitoba. Using storytelling and photographic images Matthew blends Manitoba history with true ghostly tales.
The presentations will take place on Zoom and will include time for questions and for participants to share their own haunted stories. Each night will have a unique theme.
Please join us on:
February 19 at 7:00pm - Nautical Themed Ghost Stories
March 5 at 7:00pm - Haunted Houses
