[ARCHIVED] City Hosts Annual Historic All Hallows Eve, October 31

The City’s Department of Cultural Affairs, Arts and Tourism will sponsor the annual “Historic All Hallows Eve” event at Blandford Cemetery beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, October 31.

The focus of the hour-long guided walking tours will be the history of the cemetery and accounts of some of the city’s most interesting permanent residents. This year the tour will feature interesting portrayals of members of the Bolling, DuPuy, and Rambaut families, as well as the wife of a 19th century sexton of the church.

There will be no parking at the cemetery. Event parking will be available at the Union Train Station, 103 Old St. in Old Towne. This is a change from previous years. Tour participants will check in with staff and board a shuttle bus to be transported to the Reception Center at the cemetery.

Reservations and ticket purchases must be made in person and in advance at the Blandford Church Reception Center, 111 Rochelle Lane. Tour times are staggered and will begin every 20 minutes starting at 6 p.m. with the last tour beginning at 8:20 p.m. Admission for the tours is $10.00 per person. The size of each tour group is limited, so an early reservation is recommended.

Hours of operation for the Reception Center are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. For further information, please call (804) 733-2396.
