FESTIVAL RETURNS TO LEBANON, ILLINOIS!
American Hauntings for a special weekend to kick off the Halloween
season! Celebrate the start of autumn in Lebanon, Illinois - “one of
the most historic and haunted towns in Illinois” and be chilled by
presentations on ghosts, hauntings, spirited locations, paranormal
investigations and much more! Meet authors and speakers on strange
phenomena, network with other ghost enthusiasts from all over the
Midwest, join us for a special ghost tour or an overnight ghost hunt & make this a haunted
weekend you won't soon forget!
The annual kick-off to
Halloween will be held in Lebanon, which is 25 miles east of St.
Louis on Interstate 64. The free open house will be held at the
local Visitor's Center, at 221
West St. Louis Street, right in the center of town. From noon till
4pm, your host, Len Adams and his cast of fellow paranormal
researchers will keep you enthralled with tales of ghostly
happenings. Our event is held the same weekend as the town of
Lebanon's own Fall Festival. From 9am to 5pm, the main street will
be closed off for various venders and craftsmen. Unlike the burned
hotdogs and warm soda served by Len in the past, you can get real
food served in real restaurants in town! Many of these locations are
featured on the Haunted Lebanon Tour, especially The Tapestry Room
(Len's favorite). So come early and enjoy the town and plan to stay
late and encounter the ghosts!
