WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue is offering a twist on an annual fall event.
The third year of Purdue's History of Horror Tour is offering a more scary option.
Student Life is hosting the outdoor walking tour. It tells the tale of true stories of Purdue University from the 1800's to the mid-1900's.
Story tellers will be dressed in authentic costumes.
Braver souls can check out the scare tours. It's the same tour, but with ghouls and goblins jumping out along the way.
Either experience offers a lesson in Boilermaker history.
"It's just very authentic and just a very cool and family friendly experience to come learn a little bit about the history of some of the events that have taken place here," said Purdue United Way Director Megan Dale.
Family friendly tours are from 7 to 9 p.m. and scare tours begin at 9 p.m.
Tours will run every 30 minutes and start at the Stewart Center.
Tickets cost $8.
All proceeds benefit the United Way.
Dale said accomodations are available for those needed assistance during the walking tour.
