The spirits of Halloween will come alive in Tamaqua this season as the Tamaqua Historical Society presents the 'Spirits of Tamaqua' tour on Saturday, October 29 at 7 p.m. This year's tour is one night only and will include some changes to tours done in the past, featuring a variety of new sites and stories.

The strange and unusual stories told on this tour are based on historical fact with local research and documentation. The Spirits of Tamaqua tour will begin in front of the Tamaqua Public Library on South Railroad Street. The tour will be approximately one and a half hours long and led by costumed guides. Only one tour is being offered this year.

Comfortable walking shoes and a flashlight are recommended. Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the event.

Arrangements to take part in the tour must be done in advance and you must be at least 10 years or older to take the tour. More information is available at the Tamaqua Area Chamber of Commerce office, (570) 668-1880.
