Anna Lardinois spins ghostly tales on a boat!

Shake up summer with spooky stories aboard the Milwaukee Boatline (Boo-tline?)

Ghost stories aren't just for campfires anymore, they're also fun – and freaky – to hear on the water. Hence, Gothic Milwaukee and Milwaukee Boatline joined forces to create a Gothic Great Lakes Tour that takes place every Thursday night in August.

Anna Lardinois, owner of Gothic Milwaukee and former Pfister Hotel Narrator, will guide a spook-tacular tour of haunted history on the river and maritime disasters from shipwrecks to murders. Apparently, more than 30,000 sailors lost their lives on the Great Lakes and this tour tells some of their stories.

"And it's not all tragedy, we also meet the Third Ward's most famous ghosts, the fun and flamboyant Clair Richardson, the founder of the Skylight Theatre," says Lardinois.

The 90-minute tour takes off at 8 p.m. from the RiverWalk, 101 W. Michigan St. where Downtown meets the Third Ward. Tickets are $19.98 and attendees must be at least 18 years old.

"Milwaukee waterways are teeming with spine-tingling tales," reads the MKE Boatline website.
