A christmas Walking Tour?

A suggestion had been made that I give a walking tour every other month. I think this is worth looking into. As the month after November is December, this should be a Christmas Walking Tour. Now what do you think should be included in a Ypsilanti Christmas Walking Tour? I am open to ideas, and am looking forward to hearing from you.

Succesful Ghost Tour

The Ghost Tour was a success as a good number of people came to the tours. The best group in terms of numbers was the first on Friday night. I think this was because it followed the event on Michigan Ave. A number came from there right after it was over. A good size group followed me around Depot Town, in spit of sometimes pouring rain, to listen to the stories of ghosts, murders and mysteries. A smaller group came on Saturday, in spite of the nice weather. Smaller numbers came to the two tours on Sunday.

One problem for this, I think, was the confusion over where the tour was to start. It seems most people are unaware of the parking lot north of the Depot and across the railroad tracks from the Freighthouse. In the press releases I said it was across from the freighthouse, but this was cut because of space limits.

I think I will give a Ghost Tour next year, as this was such a success. But where should this start? Do you have any ideas?
