October is right around the corner and soon enough the city of Spokane will be filled with jack-o-lanterns, candy and scary costumes in preparation for the celebration of Halloween.

Halloween is usually associated with trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins and spooky fiction ghost stories, but what if some of those spooky ghost stories aren’t so fiction?

Spokane historian and “ghostologist,” Chet Caskey, has investigated and introduced countless deceased Spokanites over the years due to his ability to connect with spirits and read dark energy.

Caskey, along with other local storytellers and a professional ghost hunter, will reveal the unsettling history of the Lilac City every Friday in October inside the Pavilion building located in Riverfront Park.

Each storyteller will tell their ghost stories from 7:00 – 8:30 pm, followed with a special Pavilion light show. Admission to the event is free.

Caskey also has written books about his experiences entitled, Haunted Spokane, Spooky Spokane, Guide to Spokane’s Historic Cemeteries and Haunted Hillyard.
