If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, head over to Para-X

If the cool, fall weather isn’t enough to put you in the mood for Halloween (which is only a month away), then maybe this bit of news is: The paranormal is coming to the Garden State.

Yup, that’s right: Be prepared to be wowed – and maybe even a bit spooked – when the Para-X (aka Paranormal Expo) hits East Brunswick on Oct. 10.

From 1 to 8 p.m., paranormal investigation groups and authors will join together to help quench your thirst for the unknown by offering lectures on such topics as paranormal technology and demonic hauntings. Renowned South Plainfield psychic Jane Doherty will be on hand to conduct psychic readings (for an additional fee). In addition, Amber Blues (featuring former Fugees drummer Don Guillaume) will perform, and the “Ghostbusters” car, Ecto 2, will make a special appearance. Vendors offering wares, food and refreshments will also be on hand.

The evening, which is hosted by the New Jersey Ghost Organization, will cap off with a ghost hunt and seance (separate admission).

Admission, $10, is limited to adults 18 and over. Para-X will be held at the Elks Lodge #2370 on Oakmont Avenue in East Brunswick, which is off Riva Avenue near Hardenburgh Lane. Proceeds will benefit youth activities.
