Downtown Philipsburg plans Halloween events

PHILIPSBURG — The time is rapidly approaching for a festive, fun, educational and entertaining Halloween celebration with two firsts in Philipsburg this year.

They are being held in partnership with the Moshannon Valley Veter-ans Memorial Committee, the Philipsburg Historical Foundation, the Philips-burg Revitalization Cor-poration, the Philipsburg American Legion Post 437 and Native Spirit Paranor-mal, a local paranormal investigation team.

The main event will be a reveal dinner and show featuring the culmination of the scientific findings of Native Spirit Paranormal’s investigations throughout the area.

Native Spirit Paranormal is currently doing free paranormal investigations in numerous locations in and around Philipsburg and are looking for more.

Anyone who wishes to volunteer any sites or information can contact Tom Brown at www.nativespirit

paranormal.com, email nativespiritparanormal@yahoo.com or call 571-5910 (leave a message).

As a grand finale to the Halloween celebrations, Native Spirit Paranormal will present “The Philipsburg-Osceola Paranormal Reveal and Dinner Show” at 5 p.m. Nov. 2 in the upstairs of the Philipsburg American Legion Post 437 to benefit the Moshannon Valley Veterans Memorial contributing to perpetual care and upkeep at the site.

It is $15 for the dinner provided by the newly opened Reliance Fireman’s Club and catered by the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary and the reveal show will provide those attending with Native Spirit Paranormal’s educational presentation on a big screen of their professional and scientific paranormal findings at various sites in the Philipsburg-Osceola area.

There are plans for door prizes and afterward, the band Zero Tolerance will kick off the American Legion’s Halloween party downstairs at 9 p.m.

Leading up to the dinner will be a series of walking tours of Philipsburg’s haunted properties with paranormal stories and information on the history at each location.

The tours will begin at dusk every evening through Wednesday. Tickets are $5 per person.

The groups hope to spark the interests of those who are in love with history and combine it with those interested in the paranormal. Afterward, there will be a candlelight discussion, with fresh cider and cookies inside the Simler House on the corner of Laurel and Second streets.

The proceeds from the event tickets will benefit the Philipsburg Historical Society and the Philipsburg Revitalization Corporation.

Tickets for either or both events can be purchased at five locations around Philipsburg: Price Park-way, VFW Post 3450, Amvets, American Legion Post 437 or at the Reliance Fireman’s Club at their business across from Weis Markets at 500 Centre St., Philipsburg.

Tickets also will be available at the Philipsburg Revitalization Corpora-tion’s booth at Philips-burg’s Halloween event from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday on Front Street or reserve your tickets in advance by calling 342-2325 or 342-1446 (leave your name and contact number and how many tickets you wish to reserve and which or both events that you wish to attend) or email mattaka1980
