Burbank has no shortage of ghost stories.
The library at Woodbury University boasts the ghost of Mother Cabrini, the first American to be canonized a saint. Last year I met a woman who may have been haunted by the spirit of her husband. If you look up Burbank Boulevard's Coral Café on YouTube you can watch grainy, choppy footage of a blob follow around an employee as he sweeps.
And who wouldn't want to see the specter for themselves?
“Customers come all the time because of the ghost,” said Peter Vournas, owner and manager of the Coral Café.
They're just curious, he says, especially late at night.
There's an old saying, something about curiosity bringing about the demise of felines. Well, then, call me Garfield, and let me tell you a spooky story about the Curse of the Burbank Canyon Trail.
