LightHouse for the Blind Youth Program presents: Chinatown Ghost Tour

Of course we’ve all heard a ghost story or two. Perhaps some of you may even have a chilling tale of your own? Well, if goose bumps and ghosts get you going, join the LightHouse Youth Program on November 9th for a ghastly and ghoulish tour of San Francisco’s historic Chinatown.

The SF Chinatown Ghost Tours states,

SF Chinatown Ghost Tours brings to life the tales of San Francisco Chinatown’s supernatural past and present, as we lead you on a ghostly tour of Chinatown’s historic and mysterious streets and alleyways. The mystical folklore of this spirited San Francisco enclave will keep you on edge, as you drink in the chilling experiences of the Chinatown inhabitants of both yesterday and today. San Francisco Chinatown, the oldest Chinese community in the United States, has been a popular shopping, dining and sightseeing destination for over a century. Yet most outsiders have never experienced the extrasensory realm of vintage Chinatown after dark. Some say that specters from decades of Chinatown history emerge just after twilight. Follow along as we journey through the neighborhood passageways where these lively spirits are said to bide their time. All the while, learn about the reverence still offered to the Goddess Kwan Yin and the hungry spirits, along with the secrets of the magic moon cake. Ancient Chinese mythology and folklore flourish to this day in the oldest and most popular Chinatown in all of North America. SF Chinatown Ghost Tours extends to you a chillingly open invitation to personally experience the unearthly side of Chinatown you never even knew existed.

After the Ghost Tour, attendees will visit a local Dim Sum restaurant for a unique and flavorful dining experience.
