Annual Heritage Festival Ghost Telling, Sept. 19

Once again, on the evening of September 19, the Heritage Festival will feature MO-TELL tellers for the annual Ghost Telling at Nifong Park.  This year will honor the memory of Greg Tyler, who was a regular and much-appreciated teller at this event over the years.  Scheduled tellers include Anthony Clark, Pablo Baum, Amy Prater, Deb Swanegan, and Larry Brown.  The program will be on the outdoor stage of Maplewood Barn Theater, from 8 to 9:30 p.m.

For over 20 years this program was presented by the Columbia storytelling guild, MOST (Mid-Missouri Organization of StoryTelling).
