Note: Please be advised due to the historic nature of the town not all panels are handicapped accessible. Panels taking place at the Tourism Office are handicap accessible. There is parking at the PFI for those who may not be able to walk or use the shuttle service to the ruins. Comfortable shoes are encouraged as we will be moving throughout the town during ghost tours and panels, as well as throughout the ruins during the interactive Dracula performance. The dracula performance is interactive and outdoors. We will be moving with the actors through the ruins. Please consider bringing warm clothing as Maryland weather is unpredictable.
