Being scared on a boat is usually not a good thing and involves pushing small children out of the way to grab life jackets. On Saturday, October 29th you can be scared on a boat in a much more civilized manner.

Venture Richmond is hosting a night of free canal boat tours that will be “hauntingly-narrated.”

Thought your Halloween couldn’t get any spookier?

Venture Richmond hosts a special night of FREE hauntingly-narrated canal boat tours on Saturday, October 29. Special 30-minute tours leave every half hour (on the hour and the half hour) from 6:00-9:00 p.m., with the last boat departing at 8:30 p.m. Boats leave from the Canal Turning Basin at 14th and Dock Streets.

The Eerie Canal Tours feature haunting tales of Richmond’s past as passengers travel down the historic Kanawha Canal, drifting through the spooky sights and sounds of Richmond’s oldest and most historically haunted districts. Little ghouls and ghosts in attendance will receive a special candy treat. This is a Halloween event for the whole family!

Then, on Halloween Day, Monday, October 31, Riverfront Canal Cruises will be open from Noon to 7:00 p.m. and all costumed passengers will ride for FREE! For more information, call 804-788-6466
