Prods, pokes and tugging of hair, a few notable reminders that, beyond that seeing thing, spirits have other ways of making their presence known.
Included on the Weston Ghosts Tour this year is Weston Bend Candle Company. Haunting ambiance in abundance, this Weston retail space houses deliciously fragrant wax creations, a resident pillow warmer in the form of one well nourished and very hug-able black cat and more than a few unpredictable spirits.
New in their corner store location, the owners say they hadn't experienced ghosts in the former middle-of-the-block space and certainly didn't expect them here. But, here they are. Although it took a few encounters for everyone to be convinced, eventually, even the doubters were on board.
All can now attest that the space has residents of the unseen variety. Fortunately, that is exactly what visiting Ghost tourists want to hear - and experience - should the opportunity present itself.
If you can't make the tour, shadow Kathy Quinn of Kansas City's Fox 4 who paid Weston Bend Candle Store a visit.
Celebrating Halloween in a town where the haunts are not limited to a single season is certainly interesting, given the added potential for an up-close and personal encounter.
