Fort Concho’s annual Night Tours on Oct. 26-27 offer the opportunity to see San Angelo’s national historic landmark “in a different light.”
The tours will be from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. each night, showcasing the fort and the interiors of some of its buildings in the evening darkness.
Tours will be self-guided on Monday, Oct. 26, at a charge of $5 for adults and $3 for seniors, active military and students ages 6-17. Guests may drop by at any time between 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. for the self-guided tours.
On Tuesday, Oct. 27, the tour will be led by a guide who will walk guests throughout the site, sharing stories about the post and about some of the people who died there. Tuesday’s admission will be $8 for adults and $6 for seniors, active-duty military and students. Guests must pre-purchase tickets for the guided tour, which has limited spaces, at the Barracks 1 Visitor Center, 630 S. Oakes St. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Sundays; no tickets will be held.
The guided tour will start at 8 p.m. from the visitor center. No guided tours will be given after 8 p.m.
