CARSON CITY’S 25TH ANNUAL GHOST WALK – ALL DAY   

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21st, 2017


TAROT
25th Anniversary Walk

"Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way."

Carson City’s spooky and intriguing history is explored and theatrically relived in our 25TH annual all day Carson City Ghost Walk.  Guided Tours depart from the corner of Third and Curry Streets starting at 10:00 AM – 2:30 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 Major Arcana, our 100-minute Tour features five home tours and characters from Carson City’s past represented by Tarot cards offering insights into their personalities and histories.  The Minor Arcana – representing the four elements – fire, water, air and earth also features characters and inside tours.  This 60-minute tour through the historic downtown is created especially for kids and families enjoying a shorter walking path.  Costumes are welcome on both 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.
