MADAME CURRY & THE VAMPIRE HUNTERS
A haunted tour of Carson City with a shade of Vampire lore from a historical perspective.
Carson Citys spooky and intriguing history is explored and theatrically re-lived in our 26TH 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. Each tour lasts approximately two hours long. The Carson City Ghost Walk is a delightfully entertaining and enjoyable way to experience Carson Citys 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 one tour path. Madame Curry & The Vampire Hunters, our 120-minute Tour features home tours and characters from Carson Citys past. Madame Curry & The Vampire Hunters runs on parallel tracks of the history of 1870s Carson City and early Nevada and the imagined fantasy of a western victorian towns Vampire culture. Part haunted history and part theatricality, costumes are welcome on the tour. These are both spirit lead, guided walking tours of the downtown districts 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.
