Local author Cody Polston signs his book “Haunted Albuquerque” on Sunday October 31 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM at Treasure House Books & Gifts, 2012 South Plaza NW in Old Town, Albuquerque, NM. The event is free and open to the public. Masks required for all attendees.
When the railroad arrived in Albuquerque in 1880, a whole new town of stores and saloons sprouted along the tracks in tents and shacks. But just like the original settlement, which came to be known as Old Town, the additional districts produced their fair share of macabre tales and ghostly lore. At the KiMo Theater, the crew still leaves out donuts for the tragic young victim of a 1951 water heater explosion. A mysterious woman in a black dress visits the bar at the Old Albuquerque Press Club with an apparent hankering for gin. From inexplicable occurrences at the Old Bernalillo County Courthouse to infamous residents of the Fairview Cemetery, Cody Polston gathers enough of Albuquerque’s haunted heritage to entertain the most dismissive skeptic.
Mayor Richard J. Berry and the City of Albuquerque’s Parks & Recreation Department, Open Space Division, invite you to a summer of family friendly events during our 2015 Open Space Summer Series.
On August 29th, members of the Southwestern Ghost Hunter’s Association will present a lecture on how to solve a haunting. The lecture will take place at the Elena Gallegos Double Shelter Amphitheater at 7:00 pm.
The Elena Gallegos Park is located at the end of Simms Park Road, east of Tramway Boulevard, just north of Academy.– Turn right at the entry booth and follow the road two-thirds of the way around the Main Loop. The Double Shelter parking area will come up on your left just after you begin to head back toward the entry booth.
All talks and performances are free with a $2.00 entry fee per vehicle to the park.
“Solving a Haunting” lecture was given for the City of Albuquerque Open Space Summer Series, 2014. It was a lot of fun so be sure to check it out again next year!
