Worlds Largest Ghost Hunt

On Sat, Sept 29, 2018, the SS City of Milwaukee will be taking part in the Worlds Largest Ghost Hunt. This is a simultaneous world wide event with live broastcasting.

A unique factor to this is that the boat will be almost entirely decked out for our annual Haunted House, GhostShip. So the investigation will take place on a haunted house on a historic carferry from the 1930s
