Psychics, Tours and other Strangeness at Ross Bay Cemetary
October 19, 2014 to October 26, 2014
Location: Ross Bay Cemetery
(1516 Fairfield Rd) – Fairfield, Victoria
When Halloween rolls around, the Ross Bay Cemetary becomes a place for the living to congregate much to the chagrin of the restful souls here. But it’s a place that folks with interest in Victoria’s past will no doubt have to visit. Some are here for the masonic history and others for the spiritual.
And in what can transpire, not everyone will be gifted with the Sixth Sense to see or speak to dead people just to learn about this city’s early days. But UK Clairvoyant Dawn Kirkham may well be a real life Cole Sear from that movie — all grown up and using that talent to deliver messages as best she can. Working together with other mediums, they will use their talent in an attempt to communicate with the ghosts said to be still mulling about. Believe it or not, maybe they still have stories to convey before they can fully move on.
Throughout the week, the Ghost Bus Tours (see above) will make a stop here with more stories from John Adams about Victoria, BC’s most famous residents. When the details from different sources support each other, including from different paranormal investigative groups, that’s when revelations can occur.
In addition to the above, a special walking tour will take place on October 26 that’ll be hosted by the Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria. The staff here may further expand the historical facts of those who are buried here.
Tours start at 2:00 pm. Meet at 1:45 pm in front of Oregano’s, Fairfield Plaza, 1516 Fairfield Rd. For more information, please call 250.598.8870.
Oct 19, 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm.
Location: Willowpoint Park, Forest, Disc Golf, and surrounding playing fields – Campbell River
Runners will make their way through a 4km obstacle course while avoiding zombies who are trying to take their flags. Those runners who cross the finish line with at least one flag remaining will have survived the zombie invasion.
Volunteers to be zombies are still needed. Visit the official site to learn how to be a part of the event.
Registration is available at the Sportsplex and the Campbell River Community Centre. Cost for runners is $10 for an individual, $25 for a family, and $50 for a team of ten. Zombies are free.
