Haunted Walking Tour in Downtown Panama City

PANAMA CITY, Florida (October 9, 2019) – On October 18 & 19, Bay Arts Alliance will be hosting a Haunted Walking Tour of Historic Downtown Panama City featuring stories of murders and hauntings throughout downtown.

“Being in the Center for the Arts, right in the heart of downtown historic Panama City, we are so excited to be hosting this event. Surprisingly enough, we’ve learned things about this area that we didn’t know,” said Jayson Kretzer, Executive Director of Bay Arts Alliance.

“For instance, the unsolved murder of Joseph Mullins, and how his car was found down by the Post Office covered in blood. And The Light Room’s old life as a haunted antiques shop. Even the extent of the hauntings in the Martin Theatre is surprising. I think residents young and old will learn something new and get a kick out of the tour.” Continue reading “Haunted Walking Tour in Downtown Panama City”
