If you love history, and you especially love historical stories that involve a lot of death, blood and mayhem, you're going to love Haunted Rockford's City by Starlight Walking Tour on July 27, 2018.

This tour is hosted by local author and historian Kathi Kresol, and she will be sharing her wealth of knowledge about Rockford's ghostly past and haunted happenings. It will begin at Veterans Memorial Hall in downtown Rockford at 7:30 p.m on Friday, July 27, and will then set off for a walk through downtown where you may just be visited by all the bump-in-the-night scary things Kathi Kresol will be telling you about on your jaunt.

The tour costs $15 per person, and tickets must be bought in advance at hauntedrockford.com. Ready for the coolest part about the tickets? All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to Veterans Memorial Hall!

I have been lucky enough to hear some of Kathi Kresol's stories in the past, and I will tell you this much; I LOVE the stories she tells and the enthusiasm she has for Rockford's past, but I HATE her ability to scare the bejesus out of me every. single. time.

Here's just a sample of some of the stories Kathi has up her super scary sleeve...
