It’s Hauntober on the Comstock

Pumpkin patch trains on the V&T Railroad. A Victorian ball at Piper’s Opera House. From a costume parade and trick-or-treating to The Spirits Made Me Do It Saloon Crawl and beyond, there’s something festive and fun going on all month long in Virginia City. As one of the most haunted places in Nevada—and the entire country—celebrating Halloween in Virginia City, Nevada is the best place to ring in the holiday for locals and visitors alike. 

In a town with a haunted history as deep as Virginia City’s mines, October in these parts is aptly called Hauntober. Head to Virginia City any time throughout the month of October for spooky fun the whole family can enjoy.
