Spring Ghost Walk

Posted Wednesday, April 22, 2009 at 2:33 PM

The Carson City Ghost Walk has been an October tradition for over a decade. A week or two before Halloween some of the town’s historic houses open their doors to guided tours and tell some of their best ghost stories. Recently the Carson City Convention and Visitors Bureau has begun putting on a Ghost Walk in the spring too. This year the spring tour will be on Saturday May 23, 2009. The 90-minute guided candlelight walking tour begins at 6pm and will feature 11 stops around the west side of town.
