|October 24-26||“Stories of the Terminal”||Formerly known as “Ghost Hunts,” we’ve decided to respect the spirits of the Terminal and allow them to tell their stories channeled by our tour guides. All tours are under cover of darkness so be sure to bring a flashlight or head lamp to light your path. We’ll be providing the stories from those who lived (Tony Fedele) and worked there over the decades with a few interesting twists. And, we may have a visit from a well-known psychic medium to enhance your brief stay. Are you brave enough? Tickets will be on sale soon, so be watching this space or our Facebook page for the announcement.|
|October 31-November 2||Candlelight Tours||Back by popular demand are Candlelight Tours of the Buffalo Central Terminal. Hear all the stories associated with the different areas of the Central Terminal such as the baggage area, and Anthony Fedele’s Apartment! Make sure to wear comfortable closed toe sneakers and also bring a flashlight. These popular tours sold out immediately when we first held them and we expect them to fill up fast again. Tours last about an hour long and leave every half hour. Group sizes and tickets are limited for the tour, and reservations are a must. Ticket information coming soon.|
