November 9, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM PST
Join Barrio Boychik, (Shmuel Gonzales), Boyle Heights Historian and Community Organizer, on the historic Boyle Heights Walking Ghost Tour of the amazing ghost stories no one has dared to tell! Learn the fascinating history of one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Los Angeles as well as how to understand the paranormal so you’re not scared to sleep at night after our tour. You’ll get so much information and scary stories to share around the campfire. With real facts and humor Shmuel will give you an entertaining tour that will give you goose bumps, but empower you to not be afraid of the dark.
This is a real walking tour and you must be able to walk for two hours mostly standing. There will be opportunities to use the bathroom at some of the locations and to sit. People in wheelchairs and canes are welcomed, and we will modify accordingly.

Do not park in metered parking, as they only allow 1-hour parking until 8pm and are very strict; the best parking is on Cummings Street, just a block over. Our location is walking distance from both of the Gold Line stations, equal distance from Mariachi Plaza and Soto Station.
