Ghost stories sought for Winder 'Fright Night'

WINDER -- Have a yarn that'll make skin crawl? A tale that nightmares are made of?

Then Winder's "Fright Night" organizers are all ears.

The Winder Downtown Development Authority knows the city has a "rich past in paranormal activity and numerous unexplained strange occurrences," the group says.

As such, the group is seeking to compile local ghost stories for an upcoming ghost tour -- all part of the inaugural "Fright Night" Halloween activities in downtown Winder.

Anyone who has "heard, seen or read about any ghosts in the Winder area (is) encouraged to submit (their) story," said organizer Meredith Cameron, of the Winder DDA.

The deadline to submit stories is Sept. 15.

All stories must be submitted to Meredith Cameron by email at meredith.cameron@cityofwinder.com or by mail to P.O. Box 1867, Winder, GA 30680.

For more information, call Cameron at 770-867-8808.
