Come and See Erastus Eels, The Phantom Bride of Wells Hollow Road, Jake the Night Watchman, and many others!

This is Mike Condon, of Salem, Ohio.  He is playing our Erastus Eels this year.  Erastus was the first undertaker in Columbiana County, in the 1840's.  Legends says he also worked with the Underground Railroad and smuggled slaves out of the country in the coffins he made.  See him at work on our Ghost Walk this Saturday at Scenic Vista Park, near Lisbon, Ohio!  The whole weekend is filled with adventure at the park with the Jackson in the Valley Civil War Re-enactment being held there!  G12P will be out there all day with our booth, telling stories and having a contest!
What contest? 
Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to make the wedding gown of Esther Hale, using only toilet paper and a few things from a box of articles we will have there.  Teams can consist of 3 to 5 people and there is a $3 entrance fee to cover the cost of supplies.  Anything extra after supplies will be donated to Scenic Vista Park.   This contest will start at about 2pm!
