Interested in what it's like to be a paranormal investigator? Ever wonder what really else is out there? Come investigate two of the most haunted spots in Gettysburg with the professionals! Investigate with K.P.I.A. to explore some of Gettysburg's hot spots for paranormal activity with all of the latest equipment seen on all of the hit TV shows. Forget all of Gettysburg's notorious walk-and-talks about the ghosts of the town and experience them firsthand for yourself at The Grove: a site that's seen more death and darkness than imaginable, and at Sach's Bridge: the famous covered bridge known for its extreme activity and not-so-innocent past. Both of our locations are outdoors so please dress accordingly and wear comfortable shoes. This is a dog-friendly investigation and we encourage you to bring your furry friend along if they can get along with others! Because of the nature of paranormal investigations, ages 16 and older please. Since travel is involved, please have your own vehicle.

We will have several dog walk areas around the outside of the Allstar Family Fun Center and the Eisenhower hotel that will be cleaned on a regular basis. You will be given poop bags with your registration, but there will also be rolls of them everywhere.
Please, please clean up after your dogs. This is vitally important if we are to be welcomed back. Also, please try to walk your dogs outside so they do their business before coming into the Expo Center and/or hotel. We will have clean-up crews but they can't be everywhere at once.
We're depending on you to pay attention to what your dog is doing. If you are staying at another hotel, and you see someone else being inconsiderate, please clean up after them. We want to leave only a good impression no matter where we are in town.
