WOODVILLE – Who doesn’t love a good spooky story when fall sets in? Heritage Village will be the place to get your fix on ghost stories at its annual storytelling event “Ghosts and Legends of Texas Past” on Saturday, Sept. 28.

The two storytellers scheduled for this year’s event are Angela Davis and Rick Davis (no relation to each other).

The event will begin at 7 p.m. and lasts until 9 p.m. Tickets for the event are $5 for adults and $3 for children. Event organizers invite the public to come out and “listen to fascinating stories regarding legends and tales from Texas and Tyler County’s colorful history.”

Angela Davis, who calls herself “the Yarnspinner,” is the International Storytelling Ambassador and shares stories from her native Louisiana roots. She has performed in over 50 countries and continues to be in demand for festivals, conferences, schools, etc. According to her bio, she travels to tell her stories to “help make the world a better place.”

Rick Davis, who was born and raised in Woodville, and is now an Austin resident, “welcomes storytelling as a friendly alternative to truth,” according to his bio. He performs many old favorite traditional tales, from chilling ghost stories to humor-filled “Jack Tales,” in addition to his own original stories, which chronicle his childhood in East Texas.
