When: October 22nd, 6PM-9PM

Where: Wop’s Hops

What: This all started 6 years ago when a client asked us to check out her business in downtown Sanford because she had a huge amount of strange things happening. Within 2 weeks we had another 9 business owners wanting us to help them with their strange activities that were scaring these people so we now have 10 locations. It all snowballed from then on, we have had some of the best evidence come out of these investigations. This downtown area of 3 square blocks was involved in many historical and criminal acts over many years. We have been lead in many directions from this evidence and its like we were meant to be here helping pass on the messages to others. Here is a picture of an apparition we caught 3 years ago upstairs above the Treehouse Antique Store. The team I was leading started to smell smoke and immediately we started communicating with a man who started a fire in that building many years ago. Almost destroyed the building and killed 2 people, this spirit had a very strong energy. I asked him to show himself and I asked the team to take pictures in every direction. This is what we caught, and I know it is not a live person because there was another team waiting at the bottom of the stairs just outside the door making sure nobody came in. You can see his head and shoulders going down the stairs. We did not see it when it happened, it was caught on film. This is a small part of the evidence we have gotten over the years, this place is off the hook. Don’t miss out on this awesome Halloween event, no better way to celebrate this holiday with friends and fellow believers. There is also a 9pm investigation, just go back one page and scroll down to the 9pm investigation and rsvp. Thanks & See you then.

Admission: $15/per person. Click here to R.S.V.P.
