Day of the Dead Campfire and Gulfport Ghosts @ Gulfport Historical Society

Halloween may be over, but come join the Gulfport Historical Society for a bonfire, ghost stories, and a talk by Skyway Paranormal about local hauntings and legends on the Day of the Dead.

Have a spooky story of your own? Feel free to share! This event is free, but you will be able to buy hot dogs or s’mores fixings to cook over the fire. Bring a blanket and get ready to be a part of tradition that’s as old as the human race – telling stories around the communal fire.
