Historic Oakland Cemetery has many visitors by day, but only at Halloween do its gates stay open at night. What better place for a Halloween tour than a cemetery. Hear about Atlanta’s past from a host of Oakland’s “residents.” Bring a flashlight and comfortable walking shoes. The stories are historic in nature and there aren’t any goblins or ghosts jumping out at you.We did this tour last year and the stories themselves aren’t scary, but walking around a cemetery at night could be a little frightening for little ones. We left my youngest at home that night.
Tours start at 5:30 pm each night at the Bell Tower (Quasimodoish, how creepy) and last approximately one hour. There will also be musical entertainment and fortune telling throughout the evening. You must have your ticket to enter. Tours are sold in timed increments, so advanced ticket purchases only. These tours sell out, so if you want to go, get tickets now.
