Leadville’s Halloween Cemetery Tours Next Weekend
Looking for a spooky good time? Then next weekend’s Halloween Cemetery Tours in Leadville is the place for you. The Leadville/Lake County Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Leadville Safaris will be holding two evenings of cemetery tours on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 24 and 25. There will be two 75 minute tours each night, starting at 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Leadville author and tour guide Roger Peterson will take attendees on a narrated, guided tour through Lake County’s historic Evergreen Cemetery. An expert in the ghosts & goblins of Leadville’s past, Peterson will also bring his knowledge of Leadville mining history and Victorian culture to the tours.
The cost of the tour is $10 per person. Space is limited, reservations are required. Guests are also encouraged to wear sensible walking shoes, as well as warm clothing and a small flashlight to keep you warm and safe for the tour through the cemetery.
