JEROME - The 2012 Jerome Ghost Walk - Spook's Crossing - will be the 10th Annual Walk sponsored by the Jerome Historical Society. The Ghost Walk will take place Friday, Oct. 12, and Saturday, Oct. 13.

Each year the Ghost Walk takes guests back in time to relive some of the most notorious and violent events during the heyday of the "Wickedest Town in the West."

One year the walk featured the painted ladies of Jerome. Another year retold the story of the murder of one of the Old West's most famous madams. Johnny Hudgens, Marshal of Jerome, was the featured ghost of another walk.

According to Jay Kinsella of the Jerome Historical Society, this year's Ghost Walk will be a little different, although he isn't willing to give away much about the annual event.

"We want it to be surprise," he told the Verde Independent.

What he would say is that the audience will gather on Main Street at the Mine Museum to begin a walk through town. That walk, according to Kinsella, will feature scenes starring some of Jerome's most interesting ghosts and acts that will explain the Jerome Historical Society's role in preserving this historic mining town.

As always, there will be a big shootout from Jerome's gloriously wild past.

Shows run every half hour both nights from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Reservations are highly recommended. Tickets are available online at www.jeromehistoricalsociety.com. For information call (928) 634-1066.

Tickets are $15 for Friday night's performances and $20 for Saturday night.
