RENO — Trick or treat in the streets of the National Automobile Museum, the Harrah Collection and be assured of treats, not tricks for goblins, princesses and action heroes from 4 to 7 p.m. on Halloween, which is Oct. 31.
Special $2 per person admission is being offered by the museum for everyone, including children, family members and friends on Halloween.
Traditional candy and gift collecting on Halloween can be accomplished in climate-controlled comfort during the popular Trick or Treat in the Streets.
Small prizes will be offered as game giveaways so the evening will not be entirely focused on candy.
A special sweet treat of a different kind will be offered to the first 1,000 children who attend the National Automobile Museum’s Trick or Treat in the Streets. Those youngsters will be able to participate in a book walk to select a brand new children’s book.
The National Automobile Museum offers parents a chance to enjoy more than 200 cars and four authentic street scenes representing each quarter of the 20th century, with facades, cars and artifacts from each era while their kids collect candy.
Also in celebration of Halloween, Ghost Tours are scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. at the museum on the afternoons of Oct. 23rd and 30.
Costumed characters will relate tales of times back in the day in each gallery and indoor street scene including: George Schuster, the man who drove the 1907 Thomas Flyer to victory in the 1908 New York to Paris; Henry Ford, talking about his first car and discussing his dream of building an affordable automobile by using an assembly line; the ghost of an old fireman telling tales about the historic fire truck in the museum’s collection; James Dean, the star of the movie “Rebel Without a Cause” chillin’ near his Mercury; or the spirit of an old racer appearing to discuss the wild days of racing.
Ghost tours are included in the $10 price of admission for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for children age 6 to 12. The tour will provide at least an hour of entertainment. Children under the age of 5 are always free. Parking is free in the museum lot.
