Take a walk on the spooky side for Halloween this year with guided cemetary tours at Oakland Cemetery. Historic Oakland Cemetery receives many visitors each day, but only at Halloween do its gates stay open after dark. Witness the magnificent final resting place of Atlanta's sons and daughters during "Capturing the Spirit of Oakland" 2010 Halloween Tours. Join us this year and hear first-hand accounts about our city's past, narrated by a host of Oakland's eternal "residents." You'll also see gorgeous candlelit mausoleums in this one-of-a-kind annual tradition. Bring a flashlightand wear comfortable walking shoes. Enjoy refreshments for sale and browse Oakland's Museum Shop for unique finds.
