Forget the scary movie or haunted house this year, to really get your hairs to stand on end, come explore some of the rarely seen and often avoided areas of the oldest buildings in Central City. The fourth annual Creepy Crawl happens Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 17-18 and 24-25.
Take the hour-long walking tour of some of the haunted areas of town headed by a member of the Gilpin Historical Society. Leaving every 20 minutes starting at 7 p.m., the tour winds participants up steep hills and stairways, past known haunted locations with live, chilling reenactments of supernatural accounts. The lantern lit tour guides participants into buildings over 150 years old and areas known for their bone chilling ghostly encounters.
Tickets are $15 in advance and available through King Soopers or City Market locations or visit http://www.Ticketswest.com. Tours leave the lower level of Century Casino and participants are asked to check in at the banquet room off Gregory street 10 minutes before their scheduled tour. Additional tickets, if available, will be sold at the door. No one under 21 will be admitted without a parent. The tours are not suitable for children under the age of 16.
