Paranormal researcher to chill your bones

Oct 21, 2013

Real-life paranormal researcher Neil McNeill is coming to the Edmonds Conference Center to uncover historical tales of terror, Edmonds folklore, and personal stories that will chill your bones!

uLearn/ArtsNow will conjure up McNeill from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Why October 30?

That night has been called "Devil's Eve" in the past, because it was the night when kids would sneak about soaping up windows, knocking over mailboxes, and committing other assorted acts of mischief.

The night is also part of the roughly week-long celebration of “Samhain,” the Celtic new year.  In this tradition, the "veil" between worlds is at its thinnest, so encounters with the dead or with otherworldly spirits are very likely.

Ask anyone what paranormal means to them and you'll likely get a thousand different answers ranging from Atlantis and UFO's, to Ouija boards and vampires.

The word paranormal literally means "beyond normal." That could include just about anything unexplainable, or (to put it another way) anything that we don't have an explanation for... yet.

This event will center on local tales of terror and folklore, and participants will be invited to share their own spooky stories.

Admission is $25 per person. The Edmonds Conference Center is at 201 4th Ave. N. For more information, call 425-640-1243 or email artsnow@edcc.edu.
