Asbury Park’s Most Haunted
& 100 Candles

Monday, October 30 at 7:30 PM — 621 Cookman Ave

100 candles or Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai was a paranormal parlor game during feudal Japan. After each story, a single candle is extinguished and the spirit world grows closer and closer. All that is required is your tale and your courage.

Join us on a tour of Asbury Park’s most haunted spots, where we will call out the names of those who have died and ask that they join us. We will then climb to the roof of the Asbury Park Biergarten where spirits will surround us (the living and and the liquid) and YOU may share your experiences. As each story is told, you will blow out a candle. Mischief night is the night when the veil between the worlds is thinnest! Join us as we reach through ….

GhostLight Flashlight Tour:
The Paramount Theater is never empty

Tuesday, October 31 at 7PM, 9PM, & 11PM — 621 Cookman Ave

Theaters hold spirits for a long time. Perhaps it is the energy of performance or the heartbreak of loss. But each theater has its stories. Each theater keeps a Ghost Light to prevent the stage from ever going dark. On Halloween Night YOU will be that ghost light.
Join us on a 2 hour flash light tour/investigation of one of the Jersey Shore’s most haunted places. This is not a haunted house, there will be no jump scares or tricks. The Paramount Theater and Convention Hall complex is haunted. Period. we will walk through this building using only flashlights. Get back stage, into the haunted dressings rooms and even the “Overlook” plus 30 minutes in never before investigated locations.

No one under 16 permitted.

December 1st & 2nd

Krampus Asbury Park 2017

December 1 & 2 — 621 Cookman Ave

In Ancient Yuletide lore the giving of gifts was not the whole story. The goodly elf that we have come to know as Santa Claus had a companion whose responsibility was decidedly darker. Krampus was charged with delivering punishment to the those who had been “naughty” during the year. He delivered his “treats” on a sliding scale, from piles of dirt to coal in the stocking to …well, lets just say it could get a LOT worse.
Krampus is still a part of Austrian and German Holiday traditions and is celebrated with mask making, Parades knowns as “Krampuslaufs” and merry making of a more terrifying nature.

December 5 is known as “Krampusnacht”. The night when Krampus would seek out those children on his naughty list. We are inviting everyone to show up in their Krampus best on December 1-2 … Or to see if their names are on his list! Please use #KrampusAP when sharing it on social media!

Asbury Park will be open for business none the less, with fun events for people of all ages and our holiday shopping ready to go!
