Capturing the Spirit of Oakland 2012 Halloween Tours

Historic Oakland Cemetery receives many visitors each day, but only at Halloween do the gates stay open after dark.   Wittness the magnificent final resting place of Atlanta’s sons and daughters during “Capturing the Spirit of Oakland” 2012 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 flashlight and wear comfortable walking shoes. Enjoy refreshments for sale and browse Oakland’s Museum Shop for unique finds.  Guided tours start at 5:30 pm each night at the Bell Tower and last approximately one hour. You must have your ticket to enter the cemetery. To ensure all ticket holders are accommodated, tour tickets are sold in timed increments, and a limited number of tickets are available.  And they sell out fast!  Limited free parking is available near the main entrance and on neighboring streets. Due to the event, parking inside the cemetery is not possible. Carpooling or taking MARTA to the King Memorial Station is recommended.  There is no rain date. In case of a severe weather cancellation, ticket holders will receive via the mail, a free pass for a future guided tour at Oakland.  This event is appropriate for children 8 and above.   For more info click here

  1. This is why I love Oakland and my neighborhood, Grant Park! Oakland is such a beautiful place and so active in promoting Atlanta history. Can’t wait for the Run Like Hell 5k as well!
