Haunted Garden Stroll
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Spooky tales and spirits will come alive this October at Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park’s “Haunted Garden Stroll.” Stroll participants will wander along darkened paths, see strange sights, and hear spooky tales of Sonnenberg from the last 127 years. 

Besides the macabre stories, that will surely leave visitors in goose bumps, spirits and strange sights will greet guests throughout the garden paths. Along the walk, participants may meet an apparition of a Civil War general who died in the mansion or perhaps they will see the Wandering Lady who continues to walk the grounds. Other visitations and haunting sights will lurk along the darkened paths. Even though this is a “haunted” event, the spooks and chills are intended to be family-friendly. 

The Haunted Garden Stroll will be held on October 26 6 pm – 8:30 pm. Admission for the Haunted Garden Stroll is $5/person and is free to children under 5. The entrance for this event will be at Sonnenberg’s Fort Hill Avenue gate, which is just inside of the Canandaigua VA grounds. Parking will be in the adjacent VA parking lot. Refreshments will be available for purchase. For more information, please call (585) 394-4922 or go online at www.sonnenberg.org
