The Aurora Regional Fire Museum will celebrate Halloween early again this year.

On Saturday, Oct. 13, from 8 to 11 p.m., the museum will once again welcome local paranormal group Ghost Head Soup.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

The paranormal group and museum will offer a presentation on paranormal investigations, spooky Aurora stories, and offer the chance for guests to partake in their own investigation at the museum. The program is for ages 12 and older.

"A Night at Old Central with Ghost Head Soup" will include:

• A presentation on paranormal investigation equipment. Participants may be able to handle and test several of the instruments.

• History of the 1894 Old Central Station, the museum's current location, as well as other local spooky and supernatural Aurora stories, including recounting experiences from last year's event.

• An investigation demonstration. Ghost Head Soup will lead participants throughout the museum and test out the equipment.

Ghost Head Soup has given countless presentations, demonstration investigations, and true investigations throughout the Chicagoland and northern Illinois area.
