Halloween Parties and Events in Buffalo – Our Top Five
Buffalo has lots of events revolving around Halloween. Whether for the kids or the adults you'll find plenty of ways to scare the “bajeebers” out of you. We've put together our top five list of things to do this Halloween season.
Central Terminal Ghost Hunt
This coming Halloween season Buffalo’s own Central Terminal will be hosting a ghost tour throughout the cavernous old building on October 28th. The Central Terminal is allegedly home to several ghosts according to volunteers and visitors and the Terminal was actually featured on the Travel Channel’s Ghost Hunters. Volunteers have attested to ghostly apparitions and phantom voices in the basement and pets have been seen barking madly at nothing at all. In it’s prime the Buffalo Central Terminal saw thousands of people shipping off daily including soldiers leaving in WWII. Ghost hunters and witnesses alike argue that these emotional goodbyes are good reason for souls to hang around at the Terminal. You can find out for yourself if the Terminal is haunted or not on the 28th check out the Central Terminal website for more details. http://buffalocentralterminal.org/
