Family-friendly, free event includes ghost stories, tarot readings, refreshments, and more
Discover the hidden secrets of the historic Rios-Caledonia Adobe on Saturday, Oct. 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. during the annual Haunted Adobe candlelight tour. This free event showcases the grounds and inside of the Adobe, with a bit of spooky ambiance courtesy of the dark hours of the night.
“As most locals know, the Adobe is home to ghosts,” says Joyce Herman, volunteer and docent. “Just imagine experiencing the old lighted adobe; it is a thrill for everyone! Beware – you just may see or hear a ghost on this special night!”
Paul Burkle, master scary storyteller, returns to share chilling ghost stories and the mystical Ray-Anne will be back with her tarot readings. The grounds of the Adobe will be decorated, with luminaries lining the path from the parking lot. Candles will be provided to those that dare to wander, and all are invited to take a tour inside.
Ghosts and goblins from Paso Robles High School’s Drama Department will be on hand. Complimentary refreshments, provided by Friends of the Adobe, will be served.
“This is one of our most popular events and it’s something everyone looks forward to each year,” says Herman. “Don’t be too scared to come out and enjoy the night – it’s more thrilling than scary! The entire family is sure to enjoy the Haunted Adobe; and the goodies are free!”
The Rios-Caledonia Adobe, a century-old inn and stage stop, is located adjacent to Mission San Miguel at 700 South Mission St. in San Miguel. Regular tours are offered Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, see rios-caledoniaadobe.org or give Rios-Caledonia Adobe a “like” on Facebook.
