Conference Special Events

Thursday Night Haunted Pub Crawl  $22 (Not included in registration fee)
Starts 9 pm Thursday night at Tondee's Tavern (6 East Bay Street, Savannah Georgia).
This is an exciting and enjoyable journey into some of Savannah’s oldest historic pubs and bars. During this 2-hour haunted pub crawl, we will visit 4 of the most historic pubs and bars that Savannah has to offer. The haunted pub crawl leaves Tondee’s Tavern on Bay Street on Thursday night at 9 pm. After grabbing a drink in this very haunted bar the tour will work our way through the Historic District of Savannah, stopping at the most haunted pubs and bars along the way. You’ll be entertained by your professional guide as they recall the stories of ghosts and hauntings which still torment the living. This is an adult’s only tour, only for those age 21 and older. Tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE. The tour goes rain or shine. Limited to 40 participants.
