WOODVILLE – The recent shift in the weather that indicates autumn is on its way is a good enough harbinger, as any, for a good, ghostly tale to be told.
This Saturday, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Heritage Village in Woodville will play host to a trio of storytellers who will deliver the Village’s annual “Ghosts and Legends of Texas Past” event.
The event promises to thrill (and chill) audiences with fascinating stories regarding legends and lore from Texas’s and Tyler County’s colorful history.
The storytellers will include Louisiana’s Angela Davis; Patsy Morris of Ivanhoe and Woodville’s own Roy Bolding.
The stories that are shared during the event serve a purpose of helping the audience to understand the history and culture, both within our county as well as throughout the state.
The stories develop during the telling, by the skill of the “teller,” and the audience develops its listening skills as they listen to the yarns getting spun.
The gates will open at 6 p.m. for the event, and admission if $5 for adults and $3 for children under 12
years of age.
The ghost stories event will kick the fall off for the Village, with its annual Harvest Festival coming next month, from Oct. 20-21.
