The Fabulous Fox Theatre has announced the return of its popular Ghost Tours during the month of October.
“We are pleased to open the theatre for Ghost Tours as an avenue for Fox guests to visit us safely as we wait out the COVID-19 pandemic,” Programming Director John O’Brien said. “Working with the city of St. Louis, we have come up with a version of our tour that satisfies all of the COVID-19 safety requirements while giving our guests as much of the past ghost tour experience as we can. Understandably, some elements will need to be left out and we hope to bring those back next year.”
Fox Ghost tours are programmed with the assistance of the St. Louis Paranormal Research Society. Tours include both Fox Theatre history provided by Fox tour guides and “ghost” stories from the Paranormal Society following their investigation and analysis of the theatre’s “hot spots” of paranormal activity.
