A Halloween concert, Ghost hunters, & Broncos shirts: Five things to know in Burrillville this week


So you want to be a ghost hunter?

Join RISEUP Paranormal founder Ken DeCosta at Jesse Smith Memorial Library on Tuesday, Oct. 15 as he peels back the curtain for a look behind the scenes at the weird life of a paranormal investigator. DeCosta has been investigating unusual phenomena and things that can’t always be explained for over 40 years.

The talk will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s community room.

BHS concert

Join the American Band and students from Burrillville’s Elementary, Middle, and High School for an evening of spooky music on Thursday, Oct. 17. The concert will feature music by Camille Saint-Saëns, Eric Whitacre, Danny Elfman, and more, and costumes are encouraged.

The suggested donation for the event, which will take place starting at 7 pm., is $5 for adults, or $2 for students and seniors.

Opening delayed

The owners of the house that was the focus of the hit horror movie The Conjuring have announced a delay in their plans to open the facility to the public. The opening to the allegedly haunted farmhouse was originally scheduled for Friday, Nov. 1, but has been delayed indefinitely.

“As of right now we are working on something big and we have been asked to limit the exposure of the home for now,” noted the group on a Facebook page created for the structure. “We will have more details soon. Thank you everyone for your understanding and continued support.”

Support your town

The owners of  PMH Graphics are making hoodies, long sleeve and short sleeve t-shirts in support of Burrillville students with the phrase #burrillvillestrong, and will donate $5 from every item sold to a scholarship fund for a senior Burrillville athlete.
