Historic Boulder’s biennial Meet the Spirits will be held on Sunday, October 17 from noon until 5:00 p.m. at Columbia Cemetery on Ninth and Pleasant Streets on University Hill. Come and meet some of Boulder’s most
dearly departed! Mary Rippon, Tom Horn, Eben Fine, “Rocky Mountain Joe”, and Ladies of the Evening are just a few of the costumed “spirits” who will rise from their graves in Columbia Cemetery for just one afternoon to tell their stories. Get into the Halloween spirit with Victorian mourners, funereal music, and a vintage re-enactment of a solemn Masonic burial service by members of Columbia Lodge #14.
In the event of rain/snow Meet the Spirits will be rescheduled for Sunday, October 24 from noon to 5 p.m.
