6 ENTERTAINMENT OCTOBER 17-23, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER LIVING EDITION Hunt ghosts at Old Slater Mill PAWTUCKET – Old Slater Mill, 67 Roosevelt Ave., presents its traditional Paranormal Investigation programming on the last two weekends of October. Two types of investiga- tions are on tap this month: the mill's long-running Mill & Mysteries Paranormal Investigations with Rhode Island paranormalist Carl L. Johnson, and four History Research Paranormal Investigation events, for which Thomas D'Agostino and Arlene Nicholson will employ technology including EVP, as well as the reading of Tarot Cards, to conjure the spirits. On Thursdays, Oct. 18 and 25, join Johnson for a 90-minute exploration of three buildings on the Old Slater Mill campus, starting at 8:30 p.m.; doors open at 8 p.m. Known for his work in demonology, and his knowledge of all things Poe and Lovecraft, Johnson has an intimate knowledge of the Rhode Island landmark, having conducted nearly 100 investigations at the mill over more than 10 years, and also due to his work as a member of the museum tour guide staff. In addition to Johnson, noted New England para- normalists and authors D'Agostino and Nicholson will lead the investigations on Fridays and Saturdays, October 19, 20, 26 and 27, 8-10 p.m. Guests join the investigations for 60 minutes, with multiple tour start times available. For all investigation pro- grams, guests will join these professional ghost busters in the 1793 Old Slater Mill, the basement wheel pit of the 1810 Wilkinson Mill, and the sitting room of the 1758 Sylvanus Brown House. Tickets are available at (search "Slater Mill), or by calling 401-725-8638, ext.100 during business hours. Admission on Thursday is $18 per person. Admission on Friday and Saturday is $22 per person. Guests must be age 15 or older to attend, and ages under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Halloween Luminary Canal Walk at River Bend Farm Saturday UXBRIDGE, Mass. – The Blackstone River Watershed Association, in partner- ship with Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, will host a Halloween Luminary Canal Walk on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., at the River Bend Farm Visitor Center, 287 Oak St. The event is a not-so- spooky walk at the water's edge, where participants will listen for wildlife, watch out for the tricky will-o'-the-wisp and enjoy the scents and sounds of autumn. Children will decorate paper bags to make their own lanterns then place an LED in each one and line the towpath with them. The walk will start before sunset and continue through twilight. This is a 45-minute family-friendly, easy walk and is stroller friendly. All ages welcome and children are encouraged to wear costumes. Enjoy apple cider and a treat at the River Bend Farm Visitor Center after the walk. This event is free but registration is requested at HalloweenWalk2018 for planning purposes.
