Chicago River haunted by Asian carp and ghosts?
Terrifying events will conspire on the Chicago River this week, and it’s not just the launching of the latest search for Asian carp.
Starting today, the company Living Social is taking customers on haunted kayaking tours.
During the night, paddlers will make their way along the Chicago River, pausing to hear tales of “ghost, haunting, and other river – borne horrors,” according to the event brief.
Living Social’s website warns, “there may be some actual scream-inducing moments along the way.”
While kayakers listen to frightening river tales, scientists will search for a potentially alarming truth.
They’re looking for Asian carp, also starting today and continuing through Sunday, according to the Associated Press.
The search was organized after carp DNA was found along the Chicago River and the North Shore Channel. Commercial fishers will pursue Asian carp along both waterways.
Here’s hoping that any creatures haunting the Great Lakes waterways are fictional.
