Brinton Lodge presents the fourth annual New Year’s Eve "Toast with a Ghost" on Dec. 31, hourly from 6 p.m. to midnight. The event offers a festive and unique alternative to the typical New Year’s parties, with a candlelight tour of the otherworldly Brinton Lodge, ghost stories, and a toast to ring in the New Year.
On the tour of the 300-year-old mansion, guests will hear the legends that sprung from its days as an exclusive gentleman’s club in the 1920s, the true story of a free love cult that shocked the surrounding community in the 1800s, and the legacy of ghostly encounters that haunt Brinton Lodge to this day. The tour includes parts of the building that are usually closed to the public.
The event concludes with a spirited toast to the New Year, which is included in the ticket price. Guests may choose beer from Hidden River Brewing Company, wine, or sparkling cider for the toast.
Tickets are $24 per person and include one drink for the toast. Proceeds benefit the preservation of Brinton Lodge. There will also be a cash bar. Tickets can be purchased online at www.brintonlodge.com or in person at Hidden River Brewing Co. Brinton Lodge is located at 1808 W. Schuylkill Road, Douglassville.
