For the eighth year in a row, those who are ready to tell truly spine tingling and spooky stories are invited to submit proposals for the annual Spine Tingling Tales event at Edmonton’s oldest and largest cemetery. Standing on the steps of the mausoleum and telling scary stories is a storytelling experience you won’t soon forget! As usual, we are part of the Edmonton Historic Festival. The historic festival theme this year is food for those who like to be "on theme."
