Ghost Walk & Ditch Witch Dance

Germany has a long history with witches, and one of the most common celebrations is called the Beltane. 

This fire festival celebrates the fertility of the coming year - and what better way to send off summer and embrace autumn and winter than by watching your very own Drumheller Ditch Witches perform a Witch Dance? 

At 7:30pm on October 1, the Drumheller Ditch Witches will begin their Witch Dance, at the same time as Lothar Malmberg kicks off his Drumheller Guided Ghost Walk. 

Explore 100 years in 90 minutes. The Guided Ghost Walk is a walking tour throughout Downtown Drumheller, Alberta, which explores the history of the Town, as well as that of its ghostly inhabitants! This tour was founded by Director Lothar Malmberg in 2011.
