Miss Getting Your Spook On? El Paso Paranormal Group Hosting Virtual Ghost Tales
Used to be, back in the good old days when the only time the word ‘corona’ passed your lips was when you were ordering a certain Mexican beer, if you liked listening to ghost tales and exploring haunted locations all you had to do was meet up with Lost El Paso Paranormal on a weekend night and do one of their ghost walks.
That, like pretty much everything else, was put on pause in March thanks to the whole COVID thing and the stay home orders that followed. But Heather Shade, founder and operator of Lost El Paso Paranormal, has adapted to the environment we’re all currently living in.
Now, instead of meeting in person and walking people through the downtown area or Concordia Cemetery, she’s sharing her knowledge of all things creepy and mysterious live from her “spooky abode.”
Every Saturday night she chats, answers questions and talks about the “true tales of the weird” via Facebook Live – and in full costume, no less, just like she and the Lost El Paso tour guides do on their popular ghost walks.
Beginning at 8 p.m. for one hour (most times longer), Shade regales lovers of the paranormal with ghost stories of El Paso and New Mexico, the history of abandoned and allegedly haunted local locations, even things like vampire lore and the Jersey Devil. No creepy story or scary topic is off limits.
As our fearless leaders begin to incrementally reopen businesses and people are allowed to reenter certain locations, going on a ghost tour will be an option again. But for now, get your spook on from the comfort and safety of your dark living room, bedroom or closet Saturday nights on the Lost El Paso Paranormal page.
