CARSON CITY’S 23nd ANNUAL GHOST WALK – ALL DAY
Saturday, October 24, 2015
Carson City’s rich and intriguing history is explored and theatrically relived in our seasonal Ghost Walking Tours, led by the theatrically devised and entertaining historical character Madame Curry. The Carson City Ghost Walk and Ghost Walking Tours are a delightfully spooky and enjoyable way to experience Carson City’s Victorian Era and diverse history. Hear about lingering spirits of the past centuries, haunted and paranormal stories. This is a spirit lead, guided walking tour of the downtown district’s westside historic homes and businesses. This 90-minute guided walking tour leaves rain or shine. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the walk begins.
