LILY DALE - This year they will mark their third visit to Lily Dale Assembly, and once again their workshops promise to be sell-outs.
Television's Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson of SciFi Channel's "Ghost Hunters,'' will return to the Lily Dale auditorium Saturday and Sunday. Hardly your run-of-the-mill researchers of the paranormal, Wilson and Hawes are plumbers by day and ghost hunters by night.
On Saturday, Wilson and Hawes will again appear at their popular Meet and Greet during which they will gather with auditorium visitors between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., prior to the workshop, scheduled from 12:30 to1:30 p.m.
Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, Sci-Fi Channel’s “Ghost Hunters,’’ set for return appearance at Lily Dale.
And, for the first time, a second Meet and Greet will take place immediately following the Sunday workshop set for 2 to 5 p.m. Fee for each day is $39.
"With so many requests for their return, we booked them again this season,'' said Sue Glasier, Lily Dale's executive director, "and, it looks like we'll have a full house on each day. There are a limited number of tickets remaining, and they're going fast.''
Wilson and Hawes joined forces more than 10 years ago to investigate their own "otherworldly" experiences. Since then, the two men and several colleagues have probed haunted sites throughout the country.
The ghost hunters also head TAPS, (The Atlantic Paranormal Society), headquartered in Rhode Island. Founded several years ago by Hawes, the society has gone international with branches in this country and in 12 other nations.
