Slip on your cowboy boots and tighten your holster as you prepare to embark on Truckee’s spookiest event. Steeped in history and colored by embellishment, the Truckee Historical Haunted Tour invites the bravest of visitors to experience historic Truckee's darker side. Let your guide take you back in time where you’ll travel around to familiar venues for individual performances that contribute to the tour’s theme based on events that actually happened in Truckee. The different scenes and characters draw attention to historic sites and facts that make Truckee the place you know and love today. Businesses helping sponsor the event often serve as a stop on the tour, and you may never view it the same way after you leave. This Lake Tahoe annual event is one of the most popular Halloween-oriented festivities – it has a reputation for tickets selling out well beforehand – and attracts visitors from all over the country. Tickets usually go on sale around the Fourth of July, and they disappear quickly. This two-day event, held in mid-October, offers tours between 5 to 8 p.m., and it’s a great way to get into the Halloween Spirit!
