BSR Paranormal Halloween

 

Join us on Saturday, October 28 from Noon to 4 PM for BSR Paranormal Halloween!

This is a meet and greet presentation from BSR Paranormal. BSR Paranormal is based out of Northern Indiana and has two chapters–one in Fort Wayne and one in Goshen. Their mission is to use research methods to investigate all types of paranormal activity. They investigate anything from ghosts to aliens, Mothmen, Bigfooot, Dogman and anything in between. If you can’t explain it, they will try to!

For the presentation, we will discuss two aspects of the paranormal–ghosts and cryptids. Afterwards, we will have a Q&A session, and then head to Fort Wayne for their monthly meeting and investigation.

The meet and greet is open to all ages, however, individuals 16 years or younger must be accompanied by an adult. Sign up online for this event or call Debbie at 260-244-5541. Additional questions? Email bsrparanormal@gmail.com.
