Lantern Tours 2018

Presented by Old City Cemetery Committee at Sacramento Historic City Cemetery

Once again, the Old City Cemetery Committee presents their annual Lantern Tour, “They Had It Coming.”

The evening will begin with period music, games of chance and fortune, and encounters with some characters from Sacramento’s past. Then, you will embark on a lantern-led cemetery tour, meeting other eternal residents who will tell tales of crimes of passion, rash judgment, and just rewards. A stage show will feature merry cemetery murderesses, dancing, singing, and explaining that the murders they committed were not actually crimes because, well, “they had it coming.” Along the way, you may encounter some ghostly – or is it ghastly? – spirits. It will be a lively night in the cemetery!

Note: You may wish to bring a flashlight. Guests are encouraged, but not required, to wear Victorian-era costumes. Please no Halloween costumes.
