The warm weather won't last forever! Some people are already thinking ahead to what's going on in the fall.

Both the cities of Waterloo and Cedar Falls have officially announced when children will be able to go out trick-or-treating during Halloween 2023. You can read more about that here!

One of the other Halloween necessities are a few ghost stories, or even a bit of a haunted ghost tour. Well, this October there will be a ghost tour held in the city of Waterloo!

This historical haunted tour is being put together by Main Street Waterloo. In a post on social media, the group confirmed the "inaugural Historical Haunted Tour in downtown Waterloo" would take place on two nights in the fall; October 12th and October 13th.

"This will allow the community to explore and learn more about the history of downtown Waterloo and its eerie stories," Main Street Waterloo officials said on Facebook.

While tickets for the tours are not on sale just yet, the organization is asking for some help. If you heard of any haunted happenings or had a spooky experience in Downtown Waterloo, make sure to let them know!

Reach out to the group's contact: rylee@mainstreetwaterloo.org if you heard any spooky rumblings.


For the past two Halloweens, there has been a spooktacular ghost tour in Downtown Cedar Falls. I was able to check it out on Halloween night and enjoyed it immensely.  Even if you aren't necessarily into the supernatural these tours are a fun history lesson!
