On Saturday evening, over two dozen people attended a dinner and Ghost Tour conducted by Chris Vera, president of the Columbia Historic Preservation Society, and Rick Fisher, noted paranormal investigator and owner of the National Museum of Mysteries in Columbia.
After a dinner at Prudhomme's on Fourth, courtesy of David and Sharon Prudhomme, Rick Fisher delivered a lecture and slideshow on unexplained phenomena and hauntings in Marietta and Columbia. Afterwards, Chris Vera and Rick led attendees on a ghost tour of Columbia's haunted sites and regaled the crowd with accounts of their own encounters with the supernatural, as well as significant events in Columbia's history.
