Additional time info:

Secrets from the Grave Tours – 7:30 pm

Moonlight Cemetery Tours – 8 & 8:30 pm

We do not recommend taking both a Secrets of the Grave tour and a Moonlight Cemetery tour in a single evening, as tours are not guaranteed to finish in under an hour. We encourage you to join us on another night if you would like to experience both tours. If you choose to do both in one evening, prepare to leave the Secrets of the Grave tour a little early to join the Moonlight Tour.

* Event durations (if noted) are approximate. Please check with the presenting organization or venue to confirm start times and duration.
