Even the local schools get into the act with students having a day of history in the cemetery. They dress as local historical figures and portray the story of their lives. A few even portray their own ancestors.
What a great way to honor our dead, by bringing them to life once more in retelling their stories and keeping their memories alive for all generations.
The Hancock County Historical Society will hold it’s 19th Annual Halloween Cemetery Tour on Halloween night, Wednesday October 31st 2012 at Cedar Rest Cemetery.
The cemetery is located at 200 S. Second Street in downtown Bay St. Louis. Guided tours will be conducted between the hours of 5:30 and 8:00 p.m. Admission is free. Donations are accepted.
