Block Island Ghost Tours “Get in The Spirit” Open House
On Sunday, April 24, from 1-5 p.m., Block Island Ghost Tours will host an open house on the second floor of Odd Fellows Hall. “This is our second year of operation. Last year we had a small office at the Harborside Hotel and this year we have expanded considerably. We have bigger spaces, different events, new experiences,” said Holly Herdman, co-owner of Block Island Ghost Tours. “This open house is a way to reach out to the community, local business owners and locals in general, to show what we are offering this year.” The new space will be largely ready with
new merchandise and retail offers.
Several activities will be offered throughout the day. Psychic medium Roxanna Jasparro will be giving free 10-minute readings from 2-4 p.m. Jasparro is owner of Bewitched of Scituate and owner of Crafty Witches Inc., master Reiki teacher and artist. His personal blog is available on his website, bewticchedofscituate.com, named, “Witch
News”, where readers can follow his events, new products and travels. Jassparao is the creator and teacher of The Society of Bewitched. “It is my passion and calling to teach the unknown and all things ‘witch’ related through collective thought and to illuminate understanding of who a ‘witch’ is and how a witch was seen in history through historical facts and open discussion.”
Rick Lysik, co-owner of Block Island Ghost Tours, will be hosting ghost box sessions throughout the day. A ghost box, a tool used during summer visits, is used to capture spiritual activity and communicate with spirits. Odd Fellows Hall is believed to be haunted and the ghost box has yet to
be used there, so open house guests will be the first to experience it. Rob Martin, aka “Magic Rob”, will also present his magic show, “An Evening With Magic”.
The event is first-come, first-served, doors are open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and guests can come and go as they please. Odd Fellows Cafe will provide cakes, pastries, muffins and more. Appetizers will be provided by McAloon’s restaurant, as well as refreshments.
Events and tours begin Memorial Day weekend and will include Ghost Ride Island Tour, New Harbor Walking Tour, Old Harbor Walking Tour, Spirits with Spirits, Evening with Magic , full ocean moon reiki, sound healing and guided meditation, private readings and sessions with Jasparro, and more.
