Normally at this time of year, the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum offers a ghost tour of haunted Sag Harbor as a benefit for the museum.

But as we all know, this year nothing is normal.

So instead of having intrepid souls clustered close together on the narrow sidewalks around the village to hear the stories being told in front of the actual “haunts” where they occurred, on Friday, October 23, at 7 p.m., the museum will create a socially-distanced evening of ghostly storytelling utilizing the front porch as the stage and the lawn as the amphitheater.

The evening will consist of an hour or so of true, first-hand ghostly experiences that have taken place in Sag Harbor as told by Express News Group writer and editor Annette Hinkle in front of the museum. Afterwards, audience members will be invited to share their own ghostly encounters if they dare.

All tickets will be sold in advance with a maximum of 30 people admitted to the event. Guests must wear protective face coverings (why not add a festive mask as well — it is Halloween after all?) and will be seated in delineated, appropriately distanced “social circles” on the museum lawn (family groupings of no more than 6 people).

Upon checking in at the front gate of the property, guests will be offered a cup of apple cider and a donut which they will take to their designated spots. Only after being seated may they remove their masks to enjoy their treats. Guests should bring their own lawn chairs or blankets and must stay within their assigned seating area throughout the event.

“True Tales From the Porch” is for ages 13 and up only. Tickets are $25 per person. Though the museum will be closed during the event, a porta-potty at the rear of the property will be available for brave guests. Reserve at
