Eveything looks diffrent by candelight. Its either romantic or spooky or authentic? Yep, a Candlelight Tour at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum is definately more authentic than one led by flashlight. This glimpse into 1855, which is held after dark on Friday, October 5 and Saturday, October 6, features a guided walking tour of the fort with only stars, campfires and candles to light the way.
Advance ticket purchase is required for this popular event, which always sells out. Ticket sales begin September 1.
While on the tour visitors will encounter re-enactors portraying the laborers, servants and gentlemen and ladies of the venerable Hudson’s Bay Company and eavesdrop on life as it was in 1855. These people from the past won’t be aware of their 21st century visitors. To them, tour groups are merely spirits from the future!
Tours begin every 15 minutes starting at 7 pm and last approximately one hour.
Parking for ticket holders is available in the zoo parking lot. A quick shuttle ride to the Fort helps set the time-traveling mood while minimizing vehicle noise and lights.
Admission is $8-$12 per person. For more ticket information contact Fort Nisqually at (253) 591-5339 or CLICK HERE.
That is a bit more than what I like to pay for a whole family outing, but it seems like such a great way to get a jump start on the Halloween holiday, and it looks like fun! So, if you go, tell me how it was!
