Marble Orchard Ghost Walks get makeover in 2023

Oct. 24—The popular Marble Orchard Ghost Walks in Lewiston feature a new look this Halloween season.

Billed as, "Sailors, Soldiers and Saloons," the popular Lewiston Council on the Arts event has new actors telling new stories both tall and true, ghastly and grim, mystical, musical and murderous.

"We're very excited to continue this beloved Lewiston tradition," LCA Executive Director Maria Fortuna Dean said. "There are so many stories in our rich history and we're looking forward to sharing them in this new production."

New cast members include Dean, Linda Silvestri, Michael Parizzi, Sofia Dean, Michael Dean, Lewis Bean, Lynda LaGreca and Samuel Granieri sharing spooky stories about the village.

There will be a new route for guests starting at the Hennepin Park Gazebo at 4th and Center streets before and ending at the Lewiston Village Cemetery at the First Presbyterian Church on Cayuga Street.

Dean said audience groups this year will be limited to 50, with past years drawing over 100 people per walk. She called it a transitional year for managing crowds and giving everyone a good experience.

"It just grew and grew because it's a favorite," Dean said.

The hour-and-a-half performances take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Sunday will feature two shows at 4 and 7 p.m.
