DCCA Ghost Walk Raises Money for the Arts in Darke County

Darke County Center for the Arts will continue a long-standing Halloween-season tradition when they host their twelfth annual Ghost Walk in Downtown Greenville on Friday, October 30, Saturday, October 31, and Sunday, November 1. The much anticipated annual event raises money to continue DCCA's mission of cultural enrichment, supporting Arts in Education programming and presentations of professional performing artists right here in our community. Walks will begin at St. Clair Memorial Hall at 7:30 p.m., and last for about an hour and a half. “DCCA thanks the local actors and community members who volunteer their time and talents to make this event possible,” said Keith Rawlins, DCCA Artistic Director.

According to DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan, the walking tour will take participants to familiar sites where they will hear surprising tales of spooky interaction that leave much unexplained. “The stories can give you chills, but are still not too scary for children old enough to enjoy a long walk in the dark,” Ms. Jordan explained. She also reminds potential Ghost Walk participants that some tour sites include uneven terrain and may be located in dimly lighted areas. Also, as in years past, Ghost Walk will be held regardless of weather conditions; if seriously inclement weather occurs, the stories will be told indoors.

Greenville Masonic Lodge #143 Craft Club will be serving refreshments at St. Clair Memorial Hall before and after the event. Tickets for the Ghost Walk cost $10, and are available at Greenville Public Library, as well as at Ann’s Gifts, Readmore's Hallmark, and Darke County Visitors Bureau Welcome Center in downtown Greenville; tickets will also be sold at the door. Tickets may be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or, or purchased online at
