Visitors to McConnelsville might get the chance to see a few haunted sights this weekend.

The Great Appalachian Spook Show Paranormal Conference returns for its second year at the historical and reportedly haunted Twin City Opera House.
 
The 120-year-old opera house will host members of the American Ghost Society and will offer ghost hunting, workshops and guest speakers throughout the weekend.
 
Opera House Executive Director Adam Shriver says they're hoping for some spooky occurrences. 
 
"We're excited and we're hoping with all these things, and May being such an interesting month for the theater, that we'll have some interesting things going on paranormally," said Shriver.
 
Shriver says the theater management recently found out that the structure was built over the remains of a set of houses that burned to the ground in the late 1800's.
 
Since 1963, guests at the opera house have reported sightings of ghosts and strange happenings.
 
Schriver says the convention will invite the public to experience these events.
 
"During the public ghost hunts and this weekend, there will definitely be opportunities to get close to those paranormal things and experience them for yourselves," said Shriver.
 
The convention will feature a presentation by Aaron Houdini, the famous Harry Houdini's great nephew, on Saturday night.
