FORT BRIDGER - Appealing to the young, the older, the adventurous and the curious, the Fort Bridger Historical Society hosted two events on Saturday, Oct. 26, in which visitors visited the state park after dark.
The events included a ‘Haunted Halloween Trick-or-Treating’ around the historical fort with haunts, and for the crowd who loves history or the paranormal, a guided tour of the fort with tales of the past, which collide with the present.
Families gathered at the fort from 6:30-9 p.m. to trick-or-treat and get slightly spooked by the breathing "ghosts" that haunted the buildings and woods. Volunteers dressed to scare followed families around the fort, jumping out at them and providing a family friendly – albeit sometimes scary – Halloween adventure.
The ghost tours began at 9:30 p.m. and went until almost midnight providing a tour guide with intimate knowledge of the fort and its former inhabitants...who might not realize they never left.
