“Unforeseen treats and startling spooks are planned for the 2012 Historical Haunted Tour,” shares Christina Stoever-Young of Sunshine Tahoe, the producer of the annual event. “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 downtown Truckee!”
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. Historians and researchers from the Truckee Donner Historical Society spearhead the tales about Truckee’s Wild West railroad roots. At each stop, attendees’ senses will be tapped by original performances, visits from the infamous Truckee Regulators and songs by the Barbershop Quartet. It is rumored a libation or two will also be featured when least expected.
This will be the most gory, frightening and amusing tour promises producer Stoever-Young of Sunshine Tahoe. The Historical Haunted Tour, a fundraiser for Trails & Vistas and the Truckee Donner Historical Society, has raised more than $15,000 for the two nonprofits. Admission is $35 per person. Tickets will go on sale Friday, Sept. 7 at truckeehistorytour.com. For the most up to date information and tickets, visit the blog at truckeehistorytour.com.
