Don’t be afraid if, this dark and windy weekend, you find ghostly apparitions lurking on porches in historic Arnold Park in Rochester, NY.  It’s just the Landmark Society’s annual Halloween Ghost Walk.  This spooky, but fun event explores Rochester’s shady past.  Based on historical facts and legends, costumed actors bring tales of mystery and intrigue to life!
