3 day seminar series beginning Thursday and ending on Sunday.
Hotel Maison de Ville has been receiving reports of paranormal activity almost as long as it has been operation. Thanks to a full-scale investigation by the Ghosts of Louisiana Paranormal Society we now have official evidence to back those claims. While none of the paranormal anomalies seem to be malicious there is certainly a "spooky" factor to the recent findings. Audio recorders, left in unoccupied rooms, picked up at least 6 different voices. Perhaps the most startling audio evidence came from a room on the second floor of the slave quarters that is reported to have survived the Great New Orleans Fire of 1788. A woman's voice in that recording whispered "burning... catch me". Amongst the orbs, shadows and voices in our rooms lies your, personal ghost-hunt expedition.
This is not just another New Orleans ghost tour! It is an interactive exploration of the paranormal at the site of abundantly reported paranormal activity. Space is limited so sign up now.
A unique summer camp experience for adults starting Friday afternoon with seminars and hands-on training lasting until Sunday at noon.
Come with cameras in hand and be prepared to catch spirits on film*! This unique camp will include a complete seminar series on the what, why and how-to’s of ghost hunting followed by live, interactive paranormal investigations.
Also included in camp tuition is a meet and greet cocktail reception and a dinner catered by the famous Court of Two Sisters.
Anyone with an interest in New Orleans history and the paranormal, be they well versed in all things haunted or not, is encouraged to attend. This is not just another New Orleans ghost tour!
*Technical equipment will be provided for use during the camp but personal cameras are also recommended.
