Written by David Dominé, author of the bestselling Ghosts of Old Louisville series, and directed by veteran New York actor Ronald Lew Harris, the Victorian Ghost Walk showcases the spooky history of America’s most haunted neighborhood as revelers roam the streets and listen to costumed storytellers recounting ghostly tales from the past.

Do you have Victorian wardrobe? (Men: A top hat, derbies, cutaway coats, walking sticks, spats. Ladies: long skirts, long dresses, high-collar blouses, lush ladies’ hats, gloves, shawls, etc?) This year during the Victorian Ghost Walk we would like to dress our “set” of magnificent Victorian architecture with as many individuals in period garb as possible. The streets and areas involved in the ghost walk are: Central Park, Park Avenue from 6th to 4th Streets, 3rd Street from Park to Magnolia, 4th Street from Park to Fountain Court, Fountain Court from 4th to St. James Court, and St. James Court to Central Park. If you live anywhere along that route and have Victorian wardrobe, please help us create the world’s largest Victorian time capsule those evenings by dressing up and either sitting out on your front porch or by strolling up and down your block, or anywhere else along the route. Or if you live in another part of the neighborhood, please consider dressing up and strolling the route. We want to create the largest environmental theater set in history. Everywhere participants look they will see Victoriana. If you can only do it for one night or one hour, it will help. The more people we have, the more participants will get a real glimpse of what this neighborhood must have looked like on a late October night in the 1890s. If you don’t have the wardrobe, or cannot participate, consider dressing up your front porch with a jack-o-lantern in the spirit of the season. With your help, on those evenings we will succeed in delighting our many visitors with the timeless magnificence of Victorian Old Louisville.
