    October – Ghosts

    Get in the spirit of Halloween by joining the Historical Society Walking Tour Guides on a spooky walking tour of Los Rios Street, the oldest residential neighborhood in California. Be prepared for creepy tales of big black dogs, strange monks who have lost their heads, ghostly tales about a lady in white and other goings on.

    Meet your Ghost Tour Guide Saturday October 27, 2012 at the O'Neill Museum on Los Rios Street. Ghost Walk Tours are conducted at 6:30, 7:00, and 7:30 pm. The cost is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children under 12. Reservations are required (make them as soon as possible - they fill up quick!).
    I have done this tour... it rocks! btw .. there is also a old cemetary not to far from where los rios street is, it's also haunted..LOL sits on a hill, only the locals know where it is, i have seen it.

    He does, indeed look sinister. And yes, he is. The street, Anton, is also named after him.

    NO PROBLEM CCC!

    oh here is some history on the ghosts of San juan Cap..


    The "white lady," who materializes in fog and likes to call attention to herself, has been sighted on Los Rios Street, the Capistrano Villas, Las Brisas, and in the foothills behind Del Obispo. She's a playful ghost, dressed in a long white dress, who cavorts and teases, but never lets anyone catch up to her. La llorona, "the weeping one," is heard along the banks of Trabuco Creek on moonless nights when the breeze is whispering through the trees. A transplanted ghost popular in Mexico and the American Southwest, her crying is endless as she mourns the children she drowned.




    Belford Terrace has the ghost of Denise Duprez, a small child killed in the fire that destroyed the mansion for which the tract is named, who cries for the adulthood she never reached. Along San Juan Creek, ghostly flute music is sometimes heard, played on a reed flute by the ghost of an Indian who lived there long ago. The Forster Mansion on Ortega Highway is said to have a cigar-smoking ghost seen sometimes at the foot of the interior stairs.




    Los Rios Street, one of the oldest residential streets in California still in existence, seems to have the most spirits. It has the white lady, who appears near the giant pepper tree north of the Rios Adobe, tossing her mane of long, black hair, beckoning you to follow. It also has the Pryor House, now the O'Neill Museum, where the ghost of Albert Pryor is sometimes seen wearing a gray sweater, rocking on the front porch. The Rios Adobe has ghostly footsteps, sometimes heard by members of the family when doors were locked and everyone was asleep. The Ramos House, now a restaurant, was once known for its "cold room" and poltergeist activity. Chanting and strange lights were sometimes reported from the Montanez Adobe, across the street.




    Even the Mission has its ghosts. There is a faceless monk who roams the back corridors at night, his sandals echoing through the stillness as he hurries away to melt into the shadows. There is a headless soldier, who stands guard near the garrison building, and the sound of bells that ring mysteriously in the night. One of the most poignant stories is about the ghost of Magdalena, a young girl who lost her life in the earthquake of 1812. She was a penitent that morning, holding a candle as she walked in front of her peers in the Great Stone Church. She must have heard the roar and felt the walls shake as the roof domes came crashing down on the worshippers. On nights with a fingernail moon, only her face is seen, illuminated by a candle in the highest windows of the ruins of the Church.




    Those who study unexplainable activity characterize a ghost as an image from the past, and a spirit as an energy force that is still around and is active, either attaching itself to its place of death or a place where it was happy. Whether they are ghosts or spirits, San Juan Capistrano has the highest number of sightings per capita than any other place in Orange County. Most of the spirits are playful, or keep to themselves. Some can be traced to specific events - others cannot.




    No matter where you live in the Capistrano Valley, there is bound to be a ghost to keep you company this Halloween. Ghosts are as much a part of San Juan as the swallows---only they don't leave.

    ..and btw,not just halloween, there has been sightings all year around. that graveyard mentioned is on the corner of the 5 and ortega going toward ortega, right on the left, there is a small side street that you can drive up, but the street is soo narrow that i don't suggest it, but through the gates at the top is a old old old old, very creepy cemetary/graveyard. ..and the lady who wheeps for her kids was burried up there.. lol

    in this article half way down, it shows a photo of the cemetary

    Clara's ghostbusters outfit would come in handy for those ghost sightings.
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    I almost went as a Ghostbuster this last Halloween to. But I couldnt' get the costume ordered in time and I ended up doing Strawberry Shortcake. (it was an 80's themed Halloween for me since I was also going to an 80's party with the costume)

    Maybe I'll do Ghostbuster this year....hmmm...maybe I will.

    no! I didn't see one at the places we went to (a cart on Paradise Pier and the store in New Orleans Square). I ended up getting this Up pin: http://eventservices.disney.go.com/f...0000478548.jpg.

    looks better in real life. lol

    Up isn't my favorite Pixar movie by any means, but I love the first fifteen minutes so I had to get this one. plus I like its subtlety.

    i don't think so, i love ghosts and the spirits whether they are real or not to people.. but SJC is a historic area that i happen to live in and near. the self guided tour is amazing, lots to see..loads of history.

    OH CCC, i forgot to mention!!!!! this is a great thing for the kids( tour of the mission), it's $9 just to get in , and then there is a tour.. but they have adobe brick making for the kids and panning for gold.


    i suggeset the Sundried Tomato Cafe and Hummingbird Cafe..but anywhere around the Mission for food is great, they have a Ruby's also down there..

    Hopefully these events get bigger. I felt it was more popular in September than Sunday.


    Just wanted to stop in and say hi. Have to get back to work not since I wasn't in the office yesterday.
