As one of Riverside’s premier events, Ghost Walk Riverside has a rich history and legacy for delighting audiences of all ages. Ghost Walk Riverside has earned the esteemed reputation for attracting artists from various areas, making a truly exceptional collaboration. Writers, storytellers, actors, musicians, and vocalists join forces in a display of talent and walking adventure through downtown Riverside known as Ghost Walk. This year’s performances showcase annual favorites including Poly High School, Martin Luther King High School, and John W. North High School. New to Ghost Walk Riverside is Encore High School for the Arts. Encore expanded to Riverside in 2015 with the mission to provide a “creative, challenging, and nurturing environment that offers secondary students with the innovative preparation for a university education and pursuit of the arts”. We are pleased to team with Encore for this year’s commemorative celebration, as it opens its facilities and provides talents to host the “Fear Tour”.
This year’s line-up will include both family-friendly tours as well as tours for the more adventurous and daring participants. Tours will depart from the Main Street Mall October 28-29, 2016 from 6pm-10pm.
The complete set of tours include: “Things That Go Bump in the Night” (G-rated tour), “Fear Tour” (PG), “Run For Your Lives Tour”, “Nightmare on Main St. Tour”, and “Riverside’s Reckoning Tour” (PG-13 tours).
