The 21st annual Ghosts of Lincoln bus tour offers 21 tour dates in October. Tickets will go on sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, at the OMT Divine Women's Resale store, 1725 Van Dorn St.
Scott Colborn, Ghosts of Lincoln bus tour organizer and storyteller, and his daughter, Melissa Colborn, 25, hostess tour, greeter and navigator, will offer free coffee, doughnut holes and bottled water starting at 8 a.m. that morning for folks in line.
Colborn promises family-friendly stories and some quirky aspects of Lincoln's history during the tours.
"My children began riding with me when they were 9 and 6 years old," Colborn says. He adds that he will point out the stark differences between the "real paranormal" and "Hollywood Horror" on each tour, as well as describe the various types of ghost stories and reports he has collected as a storyteller for the last 45-plus years.

The tour concludes with the bus returning to the boarding location around 10:15 p.m.
