Bar Crawls

Music from this Broadway hit to be featured in Halloween musical concerts in Indy




Music and Halloween are a perfect match. Listen to Halloween-themed music from “Phantom of the Opera” or songs played by a live band. Aside from being unique, choosing to celebrate this holiday in the fall season through musical appreciation also soothes the senses and uplifts spirits.

Halloween at the Murat is having Paul Holdman & Rebecca Meldrum, playing live music while guests are served up with a food buffet. Costumes are also highly encouraged to be worn during the event. And, if you want some classical tunes, head over to Music Of The Night, a delightful evening of music, refreshments, and a popular guided walking tour of historic Crown Hill Cemetery. It will be held at the historic Gothic Chapel, built in 1875, with performances from organist Charles Manning playing tunes from the award-winning Broadway musical.

Ghost Stories And Tours


Listening to ghost stories has always been a classic get-together between a group of friends camping out in a certain venue. But, to do it in a real cemetery? Prepare for the chills. Nearly 200,000 graves are located where one storytelling event will happen. Crown Hill Cemetery is hosting Ghost Stories 2018, to be hosted by actors from Storytelling Arts of Indiana.

If you are in for a more active tour, head over to Creperie and Cookies at City Market to explore the brick-arched labyrinth of the remains of Tomlinson Hall on a half-hour guided Catacombs Paranormal Tour. The Hall burned down in 1958, but paranormal experts believe something below the market is worth stumbling upon.


Halloween Festivals And Parties
