At this spirited fundraiser, participants will learn about the architecture and history of the Harbeck House while trained psychics from Psychic Horizons Center will interpret the energy they experience. Psychics will also be doing individual readings. Hear intriguing and spooky stories not found in the history books… perfect for believers – and skeptics – of all ages. Enjoy music, refreshments and a chance to preview your Halloween costume.

Tickets are $12 for adults. Historic Boulder members and seniors (62+) pay $10. For those 16 and younger, it is $5 and kids 5 and under are FREE. A Family Four Pack (2 adults and 2 children) is $25.
