Truckee, California, U.S.A. — Spirits of days gone by will be summoned to haunt the streets of historic Truckee, CA during the adults-only Historical Haunted Tour on Thursday, October 18and Friday, October 19, 2012.
“Unforeseen treats and spooky performances are planned for tour,” shares Christina Stoever-Young of Sunshine Tahoe, the producer of Truckee’s annual Historical Haunted Tour. “We’ll be kicking off both evenings at Moody’s Bistro Bar & Beats and dare you to join us as we embark on a journey like no other in Truckee!”
Attendees will experience the most gory, frightening and amusing tour yet. There will be new stories about the scars left by raging fires, tragic mishaps on the rails, and, for the first time, the tour will dive into the lingering haunts left by Wells, Fargo & Co.’s Haunted Express Train Car #5.
The entertaining tour begins with a glass of wine, interesting characters and a prize packed raffle at Moody’s Bistro. New featured haunts for 2012 include the downtown Mountain Home Center, MOBO Law, Bespoke, Coffee Bar and Scraps Dog Bakery. And, attendees will return to favorite stops – The Pour House and the Old Jail Museum.
Researchers from the Truckee Donner Historical Society spearhead the tales about Truckee’s Wild West railroad roots, and at each stop, imaginations and senses will be tapped by original performances, visits from the Truckee Regulators and songs by the Barbershop Quartet.
In addition to attending the tour, Stoever-Young encourages visitors to enjoy a weekend at one of the Tour’s lodging partners: The Richardson House, The River Street Inn or the Truckee Hotel.
“We are especially thankful to Spin Games, The Richardson House, Truckee Chamber of Commerce and Squeeze In for their support of the fourth annual Historical Haunted Tour,” shares Stoever-Young. Media partners include Sierra Sun, The Weekly, Moonshine Ink, KTKE Truckee Tahoe Radio.
The Historical Haunted Tour is a fundraiser for Trails & Vistas and the Truckee Donner Historical Society. Sponsorship, ticket sales and raffle revenue offer the nonprofits operating revenue to continue their missions for the community. Admission is $35 per person. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 7.
