This year it is my understanding that the Swinefest organizers are planning to do what sounds like a very similar tour to what we have been doing in the Cemetery the past four years. They most likely feel that they will take over and do the tours in our place and perhaps have people believe that our group is giving these tours. If you attend Swinefest this year, please know that Haunted & Historic Guyandotte Tours and Huntington Paranormal Investigations & Research will not be conducting any type of ghost tour during this event. (but please see our latest update below!)
UPDATE* - We have decided to replace our Cemetery Tour this season with an exciting new event! On the evenings of October 4, 5, and 26, join us to experience a guided ghost hunt of the Haunted & Historic Buffington House! Our new guided ghost hunts will be organized similar to our ghost tours; however instead of visiting a wide variety of locations you will actually get to spend up to 1 hour and 30 minutes with your guide, exploring real haunted locations. You will be with a small group of people and will be taught basic beginner ghost hunting skills all while participating in an active ghost hunt. (ages 12 and over, children must be accompanied by an adult).
Just like our tours, we are offering this event for free. We do however appreciate your donations which help us continue keeping our tours and events running, but we also donate a portion of what you donate to us to other worthy causes as well.
SEPT. 28 UPDATE* - As previously mentioned, we decided a while back that it was best to no longer be associated with the Swinefest event in Guyandotte after last year. The Herald-Dispatch printed a front page piece in their paper yesterday that reinforces our reasons we are no longer associated with the festival. But as it goes, when you treat others poorly and make selfish decisions, those things can come back to haunt you. Here is the article from yesterday's paper: http://www.herald-dispatch.com/news/x1945021250/Commission-denies-funding-for-festival
