Paranormal at HauntX

Update to the HauntX schedule.

We've moved the paranormal tour in Virginia City, Nevada to Thursday May 8th. This has allowed us to expand the number of haunted locations we will visit. We'll hang out at a saloon eating and drinking until sunset. After that, we break up into small groups to do some real ghost hunting. It's a great spooky way to kick off the HauntX show!
