Haunted House Exploration on the Night of the Full Moon

Red Cloak Haunted History Tours will be hosting a Midnight Explore at the Main Street Damariscotta building that houses Salt Bay Café, the Damariscotta Region Chamber of Commerce (DRCC) and the Pemaquid Watershed Association (PWA). The Midnight Explore will take place on Sat., Aug. 13 – a full moon night!

Heavy footsteps on an empty stairway, an ethereal mist that passes through darkened hallways, doors that open and close, shadows seen where there’s nothing to cast a shadow, and…  a ghost that calls employees by name! These are some of the experiences of paranormal activity that have happened at Salt Bay Cafe.

The Midnight Explore will begin at 9 p.m. with a light buffet at Salt Bay Café. During the meal there will be a briefing on the history of the building and the manifestations associated with it, as well as instructions on how to use the paranormal detection equipment. The group will split into teams and explore the Salt Bay Café areas of the building, then move on to the upper floors occupied by the PWA and the DRCC. The Midnight Explore will wrap up at 2 a.m.

Guests will be invited to participate in actual evidence collection activities, such as using meters to identify areas of electromagnetic field (EMF) activity (thought by some to be associated with a paranormal presence), using a digital recorder to pick up electronic voice phenomenon (EVP), and using video and still cameras to capture unusual images.  Observations and any evidence from the Midnight Explore will be published on the Internet.

A portion of the proceeds generated by the event will go to benefit the PWA, which has the mission of conserving the natural resources of the Pemaquid Peninsula through land and water stewardship and education.

The fee for the Midnight Explore, which includes the light buffet, is $45 per person.  The group’s size is limited due to both the size of the building and the availability of equipment, so reservations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. 207-380-3806

Tour Options Available

I’ve had a couple of requests lately for daytime walks – yes, we are certainly available for daytime tours if that is what works better for you and your group! Mysteries and ghosts are not around only in the evenings…

 Other options that we have for tours include (but are not limited to) fireside tales at your home or cottage (or maybe even inn), driving tours of midcoast haunts, historical tours only, camp or school groups, seafaring tales, private tours, cemetery tours, family reunions, birthday parties, themed tours, etc.

Of course some of the above would need advance notice, some would have a different price structure, and all would be based on availablity.

Evening Wiscasset concert followed by Haunted History Tour

Another gorgeous summer day here in Maine! I’m sorry for those of you that aren’t here. We did have quite the thunderstorms last night, though! This evening there will be the first “ALIVE” concert at the waterfront in Wiscasset. This free series will go on for 7 weeks, 6:00 pm, and The Lady in the Red Cloak will be there every Thursday, enjoying, as well as selling tickets for a tour immediately following the concert. There will still be tours in other towns on Thursday evenings, too. Come and find me and say hello!

Happy 4th of July!! Unfortunately, many of our fireworks here in Maine have been cancelled due to fog – no point in shooting them off if no one can see them!
