Haunted downtown Montreal tour – New ghost tour of Downtown Montreal coming this Halloween!
This Hallowe’en season, Montrealers are invited to Haunted Downtown Montreal, a new ghost tour for 2014!
On the heels of the highly-successful Haunted Mountain tour up Mount Royal, horror-expert Donovan King has created Haunted Downtown Montreal, a newly-researched haunted walk in the heart of the city that is sure to raise eyebrows and tingle spines!
Downtown Montreal is a very busy and bustling place. With towering skyscrapers and a professional workforce that empties out by 5 p.m., it’s the last place one would expect to encounter the paranormal. However, just beneath the veneer of urban respectability lie many dark secrets, from forgotten cemeteries to ghost-infested buildings, and the numerous hauntings that go with them.
The Haunted Downtown Montreal ghost walk visits haunted hotels, a creepy church with an alleged resident demon, and other locations where ghosts have been spotted, including the infamous Club 1234. This spooky old funeral home and mortuary has been converted into one of Montreal’s trendiest nightclubs, but clients sometimes get more than they bargained for, especially if they dare to visit the ladies’ room or the attic!
Guests will learn the sickening “Legend of the Red Cross” and hear about how Concordia University students are coping in their new residence, the former Grey Nuns’ Motherhouse. With a mysterious crypt packed full of skeletal corpses just a few meters below their bedchambers, some of them are feeling uneasy.
Those attending will discover how the City of Montreal is handling and disposing of all of the corpses it unearths in the old Saint-Antoine Cholera Cemetery, as workers carry out renovations in what is now the Place du Canada. King will tell tales of deranged doctors dissecting dying pregnant women to the approval of overzealous priests, of Mark Twain’s only recorded paranormal experience, and the strange hauntings at the luxurious Queen Elizabeth Hotel.
Led by professional actor and storyteller Donovan King, this haunted walk is sure to please ghost hunters, history buffs and Hallowe’en lovers with its creepy tales of paranormal activity, evil demons and the ghostly spirits that haunt the unlikeliest of places – in the heart of Downtown Montreal!
