Spellbinding ghost stories at Cacapon Resort State Park, Aug. 11, 2018

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Cacapon Resort State Park will host West Virginia native and professional storyteller Adam Booth on Aug. 11 for a fun and family friendly evening of campfire ghost stories and tall tales.

Booth has been professionally telling stories for more than 12 years. He’s performed across the country and was featured in “Wonderful West Virginia” Magazine’s May 2018 issue, which included a crash course on the art of Appalachian Storytelling.

His storytelling days began years ago, while he was attending Shepherd University and working on a folklife project for an Appalachian culture class. He learned about the liar’s contest at the annual Vandalia Gathering in Charleston on Memorial Day Weekend. Entering for the first time, Booth came in third place. He later returned in subsequent years and won four times. He then served as the contest judge for three years.

The event will be held at the campfire circle outside the Cacapon State Park Nature Center at 8:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public. To learn more about facilities, programs and activities at Cacapon Resort State Park, visit www.wvstateparks.com or call 304-258-1022.
