Celebrate Halloween at historic Lone Fir Cemetery. Ghostly guides will escort visitors to meet some of the cemetery’s residents and hear the unusual circumstances surrounding their untimely departures. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and costumes are encouraged. All ages are welcome, though some material might not be suitable for children 12 and under. Ticket sales will help restore the tomb of pioneering brewer brothers George Frederic Bottler and George Michael Bottler.
Please note that dogs are not permitted on cemetery grounds at any time. The event is expected to happen “rain or shine.”
