National Ghost Hunting Day is now officially registered to be celebrated on the first Saturday of every October. This new celebration of the techniques and culture of ghost hunting will initiate the Halloween season annually in spectacular fashion.
On October 1, 2016, National Ghost Hunting Day will be celebrated for the first time with the World’s Largest Ghost Hunt serving as the inaugural mega event.
The World’s Largest Ghost Hunt will be centered at The ScareFest, Lexington, Kentucky’s iconic horror/paranormal conference and trade show. With hundreds participating and thousands watching live and via live streaming, a shotgun start will simultaneously kick-off the search for paranormal evidence at locations across the United States and around the world. Known as “satellites,” these paranormal investigations will be conducted by some of the most respected and dedicated ghost hunting teams in existence.
In addition, a paranormal experiment into the effects of collective consciousness will be coordinated by Paranormal Database and helmed by Brian J. Cano, veteran paranormal investigator, tech expert and co-star of Destination America’s Haunted Collector. Cano and Paranormal Database will – with input from seasoned paranormal investigators, gifted sensitives and clairvoyants, and the curious public – quantify, measure and catalog anomalous phenomena expected to occur during the World’s Largest Ghost Hunt.
Along with increasing public awareness of best practices and professionalism in paranormal investigation, appreciation of local history and landmarks across the nation, a main goal the event is to unite and organize hundreds of ghost hunting teams in a common cause to benefit local Humane Societies and non-profit animal shelters throughout the country.
Each “satellite” group will select a local beneficiary and raise funds by inviting the public to their paranormal investigation with a donation of $10 per attendee. With this affordable ticket price, attendees of all levels of ghost hunting experience will be able to have a great time exploring haunted properties safely and with professional guidance and tools.
Since time immemorial, pondering mysteries, exploring the unknown, and peering into the unseen have been ingrained in the human psyche. In recent years, a perfect storm of media visibility, changing attitudes, new techniques and equipment, and renewed interest in our shared historical past has led to an explosion in paranormal investigation, aka ghost hunting, and haunted tourism.
Haunted Journeys, along with premiere sponsors The Scarefest, America’s Most Haunted, Paranormal Database, and members of the National Ghost Hunting Day board and its ambassadors look forward to a fantastic day of public education, para-scientific research, fund raising, and above all, fun exploration into the paranormal.
