THE TALKING DEAD
CARSON CITY ALL DAY GHOST WALK 2016
“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”
– Mark Twain.
Carson City’s spooky and intriguing history is explored and theatrically relived in our 24TH annual all day Carson City Ghost Walk. Guided Tours depart from the corner of Third and Curry Streets starting at 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. The Carson City Ghost Walk is a delightfully entertaining 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 and meet characters and tour historic homes and businesses along the tour.
This year we will have two tour paths. The Talking Dead, our 90-minute Tour features five home tours and stars McAvoy Layne as Mark Twain at his brother, Orion Clemens home and The Nevada Gunfighters. The Scalawag Tour, our 50-minute tour through the historic downtown is created especially for kids and families enjoying a shorter walking path as you meet characters from Grimm’s Fairytales. Costumes are welcome and there will be old-fashioned trick or treating and two home tours. These are both spirit lead, guided walking tours of the downtown district’s west side historic homes and businesses. The tours leave rain or shine. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the walk begins. There will be photo opportunities, tables, psychics and Ghost Walk merchandise for sale so you may want to get there early.
