Be on the lookout for witches in Germantown this weekend

Dare to be scared?

The Ghost Tour of Philadelphia will present the second annual Witches Night Out, a “halfway to Halloween” Saturday night at Grumblethorpe, the Colonial-era summer home of the Wister family in Germantown.

Visitors will enjoy a 75-minute candlelight tour of the historic home and hear stories of its documented haunted history.

Guests will also be given the chance to use investigative ghost hunting gadgets.
