Paranormal Moms

A hunter's moon is on the rise Saturday, October 28, 2023. The perfect time to visit a peculiar trolley museum and join other unsuspecting travelers on a trip down an eerie track, snacks in hand, watching a classic horror movie, only to find yourself at the end of the line, in the dark at the Jon Duerr Forest Preserve, face-to-face with the Paranormal Moms Society!

That's right - real ghost hunters - who with all the right stuff and equipment will lead you on a spirited walk to rumored remains, recording ghostly voices and with any luck, a ghostly encounter!
