The weekend of July 20 and 21 marked the first edition of REVENANT, A Paranormal Evening at the L’Orignal Old Jail, an event created by the Phantoms of Yore in which the group shares their paranormal findings.
Over the past months, the Phantoms have been conducting paranormal experiments aimed at capturing eerie activity within the walls of one of the country’s oldest prisons, a building rumoured to be haunted by some of its old tenants.
Many showed up for the event, which featured a guided tour of the prison, a 101 on the equipment used during investigations and a video showcasing macabre stories related to the prison as well as findings by the group.
Later in the night, the willing had a chance to participate in experiments in the prison – experiments destined to stir up paranormal activity (ample footage of these experiments can be found on the Phantoms of Yore’s Facebook page, @PhantomsOfYore).
The Phantoms of Yore will return for a second weekend on August 17 and 18. Tickets are on sale through the L’Orignal Old Jail.
For more information on the Phantoms and their activities at the Jail, refer to Review articles “Phantoms of Yore haunt the L’Orignal Old Jail (June 4, 2018)” and “A night with the Phantoms of Yore . . in Ontario’s oldest prison (July 3, 2018)”.
