ALLEN PARK — Kimberly Cummings believes there are spirits among us.

“Wouldn’t we be foolish to think they don’t exist?” said Cummings.

The Wyandotte resident is one of the people excited that the Ghost Hunters of Southern Michigan are headed to the area.

The Ghost Hunters of Southern Michigan is presenting paranormal happenings at the Parks and Recreation Center at 7 p.m. Oct. 22. Admission is $10. They will present audio and pictures of paranormal happenings in homes and cemeteries.

Presenters Robin Lemkie and Tom Lundy have captured some of the activity they will showcase, including searching for more at the Allen Park Historical Museum, formerly an area farmhouse.

“Spirits are all around us,” said Melvindale resident Tami Wiggins. “It is exciting that something like this is coming to the area.”

Wiggins said it seems more people are interested in the paranormal.

“There are so many programs, it just seems people are more accepting,” Wiggins said. “I know some people think those that believe are crazy, but there has to be something to it.”

Spectators can reserve space if they are interested in tracking paranormal activity after the event at the Allen Park Historical Museum, 15504 Englewood.

The Parks and Recreation Center is at 15800 White St.

For more information, call 313-383-2453. The proceeds from the event go toward continuing operations and restoration of the museum.
