  • Haunted Houston Tours
    With two near-death experiences, several haunted residences, and an adolescence spent guiding informal ghost tours under her belt, Haunted Houston Tours? founder Kasey Clark is a self-professed ghost magnet. After a lackluster ghost-tour experience sparked an eerie ambition in Kasey?s heart, she dedicated her life to chasing ghosts. She refused to construct tours that relied on theatrical fabrications of most ghost tours. Instead, she founded Haunted Houston to explore the rich history of spooky, well-documented hauntings. Kasey and her team of engaging guides?who boast more than 200 years of combined experience and study of the paranormal?lead well-researched tours and immersive ghost hunts based on historical facts that engage even the most devout skeptics. They shuffle off to Old Town Spring almost every night, creeping through haunted streets and graveyard paths while investigating stories of death, murder, disease, war, and cookie theft.

    Sound Excursions describes their carefully curated group experiences as "field trips for adults." It's easy to see why: every outing takes groups to a new realm of Washington, whether it's the frothy shores of Puget Sound, inland forests and mountains, or tables at Seattle's thriving restaurants. The events held at these diverse locations range from culinary workshops on topics such as sushi-making and moonshine-tasting, to adventurous excursions with whitewater rafting or kayaking, to laid-back themed party cruises. For many outings, luxury transportation is provided.

  • 10/31 Consortium
    Now in its second year, the Baton Rouge Halloween Parade benefits Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital, the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, and the Big Buddy Program—whose children receive costumes collected during the 10/31 Consortium club's costume drive. These costumed children march in the parade each year, in keeping with the organization's efforts to preserve the practice of trick-or-treating. The parade follows a surprise theme each year, and community individuals and Krewes, who drive and march along a downtown route, contribute and construct colorful floats. The 10/31 Consortium organizes this annual parade in an effort to nurture community creativity and inspire local youth.

  • Afton Villa Gardens
    Spanish moss drops from the branches of Afton Villa Gardens’s 250 live oaks, brushing the shoulders of Apollo, Diana, and other faded statues of Greek gods. The vitality of the greenery stands in stark contrast to the remnants of past grandeur dotting the landscape. A Gothic Revival mansion stood in the center of Afton Villa Gardens 130 years ago, but crumbled in a 1963 fire. But signs of the estate remain: classical statues carved from Italian stone dot the 250 acres of fertile land, and the mansion’s brick foundation now supports English wallflowers, wild ferns, and exotic Post-it notes. As the newest residents and caretakers, the Trimble family pays homage to the past not only by preserving the ruins, but by nurturing plants typical to 19th-century southern gardens and West Feliciana parish. Camellias and sweet olive border a formal boxwood parterre, and honeysuckle and silverbell compete for the affections of bumblebees beneath cherry trees. Visitors are welcome to tote along food and beverages to savor a picnic lunch on the idyllic grounds.
