                      Banjo Billy's Ghost Bus Tours in Boulder.......& now in Denver!

Ghost Tours: Every Friday and Saturday nights in October and Halloween - Two hours of the most haunted places in Boulder and Denver!
Tickets are $20.

Banjo Billy's Bus Tour gives history tours of Boulder and Denver Colorado from an old school bus tricked out to look like a traveling hillbilly
shack.  Hear ghost tales, crime stories, and history while sitting on a couch, recliner or saddle as the bus rolls through the core of the cities.   
You won't forget this bus tour!

Although the bus follows the same route every time, no two tours are alike. Passengers get to vote at multiple stops for what they want to hear
about - whether it's a ghost story, a bizarre tall tale, or historical facts.

Here are just a few of the things that we cover:

~ A bizarre tale of a haunted hotel complete with three suicides but just one note.
~ How bootleggers fired the entire police force and left one cop dead.
~ Tattoos, Adidas and peace pipes may be common in Boulder, but did you know they've been in here for 7,500 years?
~ The Spider People.
~ How the ghost of an obsessive boy scout takes revenge on a girl scouts' exhibit
~ The first meeting of Chief Niwot and Capt. Thomas Aikens
~ The flamboyant owner of Boulder's most expensive home dies a pauper, in 1901
~ 10 year old Walter dies in the mountain mines in 1896 and has been here ever since
~ Boulder History Museum, The Plaza Hotel and three pampered dogs all in one story
~ The Mystery at Macky Auditorium

In Denver, learn the history of Emily Griffith and her Opportunity School. See where police and the National Guard had a standoff in the City
Hall Wars. Hear about the goulish history of some of Denvers most famous parks!

* In Boulder, Banjo Billy's Bus Tours departs at the Hotel Boulderado located at the corner of 13th & Spruce in Boulder Colorado.

       'Haunted'........at the (haunted) Byers-Evans House Museum!

A new play tells real Colorado ghost stories!

October 10th - November 2nd, 2008

*** HELD OVER! ***   Extended by popular demand! 2 special shows have been added!
Friday Nov. 7 at 9:30pm and Saturday Nov. 8th at 7:00pm.
Reserve your seats early, seating is limited!

Join us at the Byers-Evans House for the world premier of Haunted, a bone-chilling theatrical exploration of Colorado’s most notoriously
haunted locations, including our own venue! Join us as we search for explanations for uncommon events.
This Halloween season, Colorado is our haunted playground.

It’s that time of year again, when nothing is more inviting than a shivery, spine-tingling ghost story. And that makes the new Hunger Artists
Ensemble Theatre production
Haunted the perfect evening out!

“I’m part of a paranormal research investigations team,” explains playwright and Hunger Artist Maggie Stillman, “so when we decided to do
something for Halloween, we wanted to tell ghost stories, because that’s what people want to hear. I made a list of what I believe to be the
crème de la crème of the ghost stories I’ve heard, and I went and did an investigation at each location and brought back evidence. Then I
mixed my lore and my evidence into five vignettes.”

The resulting play is set at the Stanley Hotel, the Melting Pot Restaurant and a few other locales — including the Byers-Evans House Museum,
1310 Bannock Street, where Haunted is being staged. “There are ghost stories within the play,” says Stillman. “We have real actors telling the
ghost stories from the perspective of real people who experienced the events and the historical people who were involved in them.”

Haunted  continues through November 2; tickets are $13 to $15. Visit www.hungerartists.org or call 303-893-5438.
Oct. 10-11, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 9:30 p.m.; Oct. 28-Nov. 1, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 10. Continues through Oct. 25, 2008

             Pueblo- Ghost Walk at the haunted Damon Runyon Repertory!

October 25th, 2008

Every 20 minutes starting at dusk

DRR will host its first Ghost Walk - a tour of the areas of the theater where unexplained incidents have been witnessed!

.......Talk to members of the Damon Runyon Repertory and you'll get no shortage of ghost tales. Not just any ghosts, either. These spirits
allegedly occupy the Runyon Theater, 611 N. Main St., sharing space with the actors and making their presence known on a regular basis.

"We've got, we believe, at least three ghosts - a man, a woman and a little girl," said CEO Sean Briggs.

Briggs said he wouldn't identify himself as a believer, yet he has a goosebump-inducing story from a decade ago, when the troupe moved into
the theater. He and his brother-in-law were painting the lobby one night and had a small radio with them so they could listen to music. Before
leaving for dinner, Briggs turned off the radio and unplugged it.

When the men returned, Briggs said they heard strange noises - voices, static and music. The radio dial was moving back and forth through
the channels . . . but Briggs hadn't plugged it back in. He opened the battery compartment. Empty. He turned over the radio and set it down,
and it went silent. "We turned around and got out," he said...............

by some to haunt the Briggle House today
; George Milne, the Briggle’s next door neighbor, who was tragically killed in a railroad accident;
Ada Finding, who, in 1888, was pronounced dead and came back to life, albeit only for a day; and, Edwin Carter, a taxidermist and naturalist

The Emily Griffith Murder Mystery!

Sunday, October 19th, 2008


Beloved educator Emily Griffith was found dead in her Pinecliffe cabin on the morning of June 19, 1947. She was slain execution-style, as was
her older sister. The murders defied logic, offended decency, and shocked the nation.

The case remains unsolved.

By founding one of the first schools in the world to offer free public education to adults, Emily Griffith empowered people of all ethnicities,
backgrounds, and circumstances.

Explore the mystery of Griffith's bizarre death as historian Debra Faulkner takes you step-by-step through the crime investigation and ensuing
manhunt, and proposes an alternative theory of whodunit.

Is Sedalia haunted? It is if you ask the Widow Mary McDonald, a hostess garbed in 19th century mourning dress who leads Sedalia Ghost
Walks during October. Some people are not as sensitive to the supernatural as others, says the widow, who does not guarantee ghost
sightings, but promises historic information on the walks. Proceeds benefit the Sedalia Historic Fire House Museum. The walks are limited to 15
spirit seekers per evening. Participants should bring flashlights and wear walking shoes and meet at the Sedalia fire station.

Downtown Denver's only Four-Star/Four-Diamond hotel, The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa, which has been welcoming guests every day since its
doors opened on Aug. 12, 1892. The historic hotel boasts four distinctive dining experiences, a new $3 million spa, and unique meeting and
function space, all within walking distance of the city's most popular sites.

One of the hotel's ghost stories that is told on the tour is that of Mrs. Louise Crawford Hill, who ruled Denver society and lived in room 904 of
The Brown from 1940 to 1955. Mrs. Hill was one of several permanent guests who lived in 20 apartments located on the top two floors of the
hotel from 1937 to 1986. During the renovation of these floors the hotel historian conducted a series of tours which included stories about the
apartment residents – including Mrs. Hill. Once stories about her life and heartbreak over a lost love were recounted on the tours, the hotel's
main switchboard began receiving calls from room 904. When answering the calls, the hotel operator heard only static on the line. The calls
were a great mystery, because room 904 had been stripped of all furniture, lights, wallpaper, carpet and telephones during the renovation.
The historian took Mrs. Hill's saga out of the tour, and the calls from room 904 ceased.

Adults and teens are invited to attend the “If You Dare” evening program from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the Park Village Playhouse. Romantic

historical chronicles awaken the imagination while lifting the hair on the back of your neck. Susan Marie Frontczak’s repertoire includes The
Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe, Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti, The Legend of Bluebeard by Guy Welmore Carryl, The Highwayman
by Alfred Noyes, and many others.

Storysmith Susan Marie Frontczak brings history and literature to life, creates stories from thin air, and hones personal experience into tales
worth telling again and again. She has presented to university, corporate, school, family, and theater audiences across 34 of the United
States. Whether inventing stories off the cuff , infusing poetry with fresh breath, or presenting a honed dramatic performance, Susan Marie
lives up to her motto, “Give me a place to stand, and I will take you somewhere else.”

Miramont Castle
9 Capitol Hill
Manitou Springs, Colorado

It is with great sorrow that we mourn the passing of Miss Emma Crawford

In 1889 Emma Crawford came to Manitou Springs in search of her health. It was her desire that she would benefit from the crisp mountain air
and Manitou Springs famous mineral waters. Sadly Emma succumbed to her illness and as she wished was laid to rest on top of Red Mountain
when years later her coffin washed down the granite cliff. (See Emma Crawford Coffin Race and Parade listing for more details). Admission
includes entrance into Miramont Castle, Victorian wake and among the other guests include Buffalo Bill Cody and his wife, Lillian Russell (aka
Diamond Lil), Dr. Davis and of course the original Miramont Castle residents Father Francolon and his mother Madam Marie Francolon.

The event is graced in pure Victorian splendor and you will enjoy Victorian food and beverage in the great hall. Space is limited and

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

12pm to 3pm

Fun Filled Day of Coffins, Costumes, & Coffin Racing!

Emma Crawford lived in Manitou Springs at the turn of the century. She came to Manitou Springs seeking a cure for her tuberculosis by means
of the famous mineral waters and while she was here, became infatuated with Red Mountain. Being a spiritualist, Emma believed she saw her
Indian guide waiting for her on the mountain. She did climb to the Summit of Red Mountain and expressed her desire to be buried there. Sadly,
Emma died quite young. Her family kept their promise to Emma and she was carried to the top of Red Mountain by 12 strong men and laid to
rest there. Emma rested peacefully for many years. But Red Mountain is granite and eventually the granite gave way and what remained of
Emma's coffin washed down the side of Red Mountain. Now Historic Manitou Springs remembers this beautiful young woman who loved the
color red with its own unique festival. Come see the coffin race or even better race one with a team of your own! Parade begins around noon
with races immediately following.

glows in the dark, the murdered hippie boy, and a changeling. None of the haunts will actually be entered (for fear someone might disappear).
Phil Goodstein is the author of The Ghosts of Denver. These tours are X-rated, not for children or the faint of heart. And, don't be late! The
tour leaves promptly at the appointed time and will not stop to accommodate stragglers. Because of problematic spirits in the past, no alcohol
is allowed on the bus.

Tours fill quickly, so register early!.

October 11th, 2008

There are more than 2,000 bodies buried in Cheesman Park! The location of the former 'Changeling' house is adjacent to it. Bizarre events
sometimes occur there late at night, and supposedly there is a spot in the park where an object never casts a shadow at high noon. Exactly
what is going on, the history of the park, its spirits, and nearby houses are featured on this walking tour.

              Buckskin Joe's Town of Terror 2008
                                     Canon City

YOU thought the nightmare was over forever, YOU thought you'd never be scared again, YOU... WERE WRONG!

Back with a vengeance!

2008 Dates:  
October 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 28th - Nov. 1st

See what evil is lurking around the next corner this year as the staff of Buckskin Joe transform this peaceful old west town into a sinister
haunted attraction that rivals the best of the best anywhere. Leave it to our twisted staff to take something already scary at night and turn it
into something so down right demented that adults literally wet themselves, on a nightly basis. No wonder it is fast becoming known as one of
the most frightening haunted attractions in Colorado.

Buckskin Joe exploits its own renowned haunted history, which was highlighted on the History Channel’s - Haunted Rockies Series, to turn
Town of Terror into something hauntingly special. Inexplicable things that go on here day after day and year after year only enhance the visitor’
s experience. Some have seen little children, apparently part of the haunt, only to be told there are no children involved with the haunt. Still
others feel the touch of another only to turn and see no one. This is the experience that awaits the most hardened haunt seekers.

Imagine a haunt, isolated from city noise and lights, set in the Colorado foothills where no one will hear you scream. Imagine a quiet so loud it
drives ones imagination wild, or does it? Imagine stepping into a town surrounded by the specters of buildings from a time long ago. They
themselves, ghosts of a past forgotten and silhouetting the night sky like evil guardians of the sinister town. Imagine rounding a corner and
being face to face with the Lincoln Theatre (the Grand Central Station for nether world activity in Buckskin Joe), its eyes keeping watch over
the town. Remembrances of a past fraught with death and destruction. A past as an old barn used for public executions in the late 1800’s and
additionally to store bodies in during the winter until the spring thaw came and softened the ground for burial. Now imagine that you are in the
town alone, separated from the people you trust and the only way out will take you through the depths of your own soul.

Warning this event is not recommended for persons who are faint at heart, claustrophobic, are prone to seizures or recommended for young
children. Uneven footing, tight, enclosed spaces, low lighting, strobe lights and fog effects are in use.

A few lucky souls each year get an additional experience of seeing our real ghosts each year, will you be one?

this mansion, you'll understand why it is Denver's most haunted home! We will also learn about the Peabody Mansion, the Sheedy House and

October 17th - November 1st, 2008

Please call for details, exact dates & times.

The Bessemer Historical Society (BHS) will for the fifth year, host a fundraising, and hair-raising, Haunted House.

The first and second floors of the old Main CF&I Administration Building, built in 1901 and located at 225 Canal Street at Abriendo Ave. in
Pueblo (I-25 exit 97-A), will be transformed into the Halls of Horror IV. BHS is enlisting the creative talent of David McNeilly, well known local
actor, and theatre teacher at Pueblo West High School, who will coordinate the "scares" using drama students from the school, and local
volunteers. The plan is to make each area of both floors progressively scarier, with no one under the age of 8 allowed.

Small tour groups will enhance the experience. Tickets are $6 for children 8 to 11, and $9 for adults. To help ease waiting time in line, tickets
will be sold in half hour increments. It's recommended that reservations for a particular day and time be made, as tickets will be on a "first
come, first served" basis.

There will also be food and beverage concessions, and frightfully good bargains on a variety of merchandise.
For information, call (719) 564-5533.

Volunteers are needed to help guide tour groups, sell merchandise and act as "roving" actors. Those interested in volunteering should call

Do you believe in ghosts? Join author and researcher J. Allan Danelek in a fascinating and balanced look at the mysterious world of the
paranormal that will leave you better able to understand and appreciate just what a ghost is. Examine the sort of questions rarely asked about
ghosts such as what, exactly, is a ghost and how do they manifest themselves in linear time and space? Does everyone automatically become
a ghost when they die, or only some people (and why)? What types of tools are used to hunt ghosts and what becomes of them when they’re
done haunting? Time will be devoted to answering your questions. The Case for Ghosts will be available for optional purchase.
