Go On a Spooky Full Moon Drive-Thru of Concordia Cemetery
This Friday, July 23, you can experience Concordia Cemetery in a way you don't usually get a chance to. “El Paso’s City of the Dead” will be the focus of a drive-thru fundraising ghost tour by the Paso Del Norte Paranormal Society.
Graveyard ghost walks are normally just that; a walk through the cemetery led by the group hosting the event. But during the "Howl at the Moon Drive-thru," you can check out one of El Paso's top paranormal hot spots on your own from your car.
You're not allowed in the cemetery after it closes at 8 p.m., and much less drive through it so this is a chance to not only do both of those things, but do it on a full moon night.
And staying in your car keeps you relatively safe from Earth-bound spirits stirred up by the full moon and the equally scary coronavirus variants.
Okay, I really don't know how true either one of those claims are, but I can assure you the moonlit route will take you by some of Concordia's famous landmarks: like the grave of the legendary John Wesley Hardin, the spooky children's section with the creepy crib, and the Three Trees. That's the area where Richard Ramirez, aka “The Night Stalker,” used to perform animal sacrifices. It’s said some who practice the occult continue to frequent that section because of its ties to Ramirez.
Paso Del Norte Paranormal Society, aka Ghosts915, is asking $10 per car with proceeds benefiting the Concordia Heritage Association, which is tasked with the cemetery's maintenance and preservation. A link to buy tickets in advance and more details can be found HERE.
