Ghost Hunting in Downtown Pensacola

Pensacola Para Con brings ghost stories to life
By Jennie McKeon

Downtown Pensacola is a great place to see art, have a nice dinner and…hunt for ghosts.

Skeptics and believers can unite at the Pensacola Para Con where you can tour the haunted streets of Pensacola, meet paranormal celebrities and check out ghost hunting equipment.

“Most people will be trying to see if they can have a paranormal experience,” said local psychic Ericka Boussarhane. “It’s the perfect time to have an open mind and talk with experts in the field.”

The events will begin Saturday, Sept. 18 with a historic Pensacola walking tour. The tour is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the cost is $15. If you own ghost hunting equipment, you are encouraged to bring it. If you’re missing your household K-2 meter (used to find manipulations in electricity), equipment will be sold at the expo.

Saturday night from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., an investigation of the Gray House on Alcaniz Street will be conducted. According to the Pensacola Para Con website, the ghost of sea captain Thomas Moristo, who lived there during the 1700s, still hangs around. Tickets are $30.

On Sunday, Sept. 19, from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., Seville Quarter will be investigated. The $40 ticket includes a lunch buffet, where you can dine with paranormal celebrities such as Brad and Barry Klinge of Discovery Channel’s “Ghost Lab,” Patrick Burns of truTV’s “Haunting Evidence,” and author Marley Gibson.

If you’re still not scared by Sunday night, you can join the Pensacola Little Theatre investigation from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. Tickets are $30.
