Join us for an evening of ghosts, nervous laughter and tongue-in-cheek tales. Two of Littleton's favorite sons, Brian Vogt (CEO of Denver Botanic Gardens) and John Brackney (President of the South Metro Chamber) are the self-proclaimed "...protectors of all that is right and good in the world" are the tour guides on this frightfully fun adventure.
You will learn of the tale of Alferd Packer, Littleton’s cannibal and of the spirits who lurk in the old Carnegie Library (now the Melting Pot) and why they are still there. There are the Ladies of the night who look out of 2nd story windows and the Littleton catacombs where strange sites are still to be seen. Fairies and phantoms in gardens and ghouls lurking around corners.
A great time will be had by young and old alike as you walk the streets and alleyways ever vigilant for the unexpected...
This is the 9th year of our Haunts of Littleton and now thousands have experienced the history and horrors of Historic Downtown Littleton. Tours range from a dozen up to 100 and are first come, first served (up for dinner?)...
Be forewarned you brave souls: space is limited and payment is cash only at the begining of the tour. The contribution for this event is $13.00 each per person and $2.00 for those 13 and younger. Proceeds benefit Historic Downtown Littleton projects to improve the visitor experience to the area.
This is the 3rd of only three tours in 2011: The 1st tour is at 7:00 pm and the 2nd at 9:00 pm on October 22nd. The 7:00 tour is slightly more family friendly - the 9:00 tour is slightly more scary - and the 8:00 tour - well, you will just have to take your chances now, won't you?
Tours are rain, snow or dark and are for ages 5 - 100 (we might make exceptions for those older or younger as they are more tender and easily overtaken.)
