LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Family-friendly stories and ghost tales will combine with music and activities for a two-day festival in Louisville next month.

The Corn Island Storytelling Festival ended its three-decade run in 2007, but the University of Louisville and Corn Island organizers have revived the event the last three years. This year, Blackacre State Nature Preserve and Historic Homestead will join to extend the festival an extra day.

Storytellers and musicians participating in Oct. 23 and 24 festival include Bob Sander of Storytelling Arts of Indiana, paranormal investigator Roberta Simpson Brown and spiritual leader Matthew Black Eagle Man, a Dakota from Long Plain First Nation in Manitoba, Canada.

The festival will be held at University of Louisville’s Belknap Campus from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT Oct. 23 and at Blackacre Preserve from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Oct. 24.
