Moon River Halloween Party:
If you aren’t into a full blown night of Pub Crawling but still want to have a little Halloween Fun,
head over to Moon River. Moon River Brewing Company is located in one of Savannah’s most notoriously haunted buildings. Both staff and visitors alike have reported an unsettling amount of paranormal activity going on within the building. Built in 1821,the building housed Savannah’s first hotel, was the site of Savannah’s cotton exchange and has a very dark and violent history. It closed it’s doors in 1864 just before General Sherman made it to Savannah on his march to the sea during the Civil War. The building was out of commission for the better part of the century, being used as coal and lumber storage but mostly sat empty until Moon River Brewing Company opened it’s doors in 1999. Now, Moon River Brewing Company is a favorite of Savannah natives and tourists alike. Pouring some of the best pints Savannah has to offer and attracting ghost and paranormal activity enthusiasts from all over the country, it only makes sense that they throw a pretty great Halloween Party.
Head over to Moon River Brewing Company on Saturday, October 29th around 9pm for their annual Halloween party with drinks, music and maybe a ghost sighting
Address: Moon River Brewing Company, 21 W Bay St, Savannah, GA 31401
