“This is the tenth anniversary of our annual night of ghost stories around the bone-fire in Bishop Hill,” Fox said. “Every year I present a different theme, but this year I will share a greatest hits program with audience favorites including Irish ghosts, river ghosts, classic tales of terror and scary stories from around the world.”

The program is appropriate for all ages. Fox will start with more silly scary stories and transition to scarier stories as the night goes on.

Ghost Stories with Brian “Fox” Ellis is Saturday, October 22, 6:00 p.m. at the Twinflower Inn, located at 110 North Olson St., Bishop Hill. The event is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5 for children and $10 for adults.
