Mentor Ohio Paranormal Research Society Hosting Ghost Tours In Mentor This Halloween

People can learn more about the history and hauntings of Mentor City Cemetery, Mentor Lagoons and the Wildwood Cultural Center

Dale Vokurka is the lead investigator and one of the founders of the Mentor Ohio Paranormal Research Society.

They go to historical locations in and around Mentor and record EVPs -- electronic voice phenomena, for those who don't know -- in search for evidence of ghosts, spirits and other supernatural anomalies.

Vokurka understands that some people may be skeptical about what he and his crew do. And, to the nay-sayers, he extends this invitation:

"I encourage them to come on an investigation with us and let what happens be the proof," he said.

Spirit hunters and skeptics alike have a chance to join Vokurka and the MOPRS on a series of ghost tours and paranormal investigations in some of Mentor's most historical locations.

People can learn more about the history of the Mentor City Cemetery, Mentor Lagoons and Wildwood Cultural Center, while helping the MOPRS find evidence of the supernatural.

There will be three tours each on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as well as two more on Nov. 1.

The tours this week will begin at 6 p.m., 8:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. Each will take about two hours.

On Friday and Sunday, people can join the MOPRS at Mentor City Cemetery. On Saturday, the MOPRS will lead tours of the Mentor Lagoons.

Finally, the MOPRS will have tours at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Nov. 1 of Wildwood Cultural Center.

The tours cost $15 for residents of Mentor; $19 for nonresidents.

Unfortunately, no children younger than 18 can participate in the tours.

Too bad kids can't participate. My kids would thoroughly enjoy this adventure!

I know, but the city wanted to keep it to adults for this year, so how it goes, and maybe extend it to all ages next year.
