PHOENIX - Dozens of people braved the heat Saturday afternoon to go ghost hunting in downtown Phoenix.
The tour starts at the Orpheum Theater.
Tour guide and owner of Phoenix Ghost Tour, Joe Atrades, claims a ghost by the name of Tom resides inside the theater.
From there, Atrades takes his group throughout the downtown area, teaching them about paranormal activity inside some of the buildings downtown.
This is the first summer for the ghost hunting tour. Atrades typically runs the ghost tours during the fall but is testing out the summer months.
He says the hot weather has definitely scared some people away but he tries his hardest to keep everyone safe.
“I bring plenty of water and we keep them well hydrated,” Atrades said. “I was thinking about bringing a hose but people frown on that when you’re walking down the street all wet.”
The tour lasts about an hour and a half.
