Hey, ghouls: party at the Boise Depot

Throngs of resdients lined the tracks to see the first Union Pacific passenger train pull into Boise on the morning of April 16, 1925. Chances are that throngs will also show up for the city’s free trick or treat at the historic depot on Oct. 30.

The city of Boise hosts a Masquerade Open House at Boise Depot, 1:30-8:30 p.m., Oct. 30.

Bring the kids in their costumes and enjoy a Halloween masquerade fest at the iconic depot at 2603 W Eastover Terrace. Trick or treating begins at 6:30 p.m.

Local railroad expert Eriks Garsvo will lead free guided tours beginning at 7:15 p.m. and Sweet Pitkin’s will be on-site selling what they’re calling “freaky comfort food.” It’s worth going just to see what that means.

For more information, see the Boise Depot website, email reserve@cityofboise.org or call (208) 608-7600.
