What if your dream job was to give other people nightmares?

That's the fun and frightful profession that makes Josiah George of Boston wake up each day looking forward to nightfall with a touch of sinister glee, especially during the Halloween season. George is one of a troupe of talented, costumed performers that take tourists on a unique excursion of Boston locales and dark streets. They are guides on Boston's Ghosts and Gravestones tour, which unveils some of the city's Colonial secrets with a delightfully eerie witch's brew of scary fun and macabre history, mixed with a dash of dark humor.
