The non-profit group Spirits Alive will once again be offering their popular “Walk Among the Shadows” event in the Eastern Cemetery this October. This year’s theme is “Untimely Ends”, including accounts of 18th century medical treatments, pauper’s graves, and burial of visitors from away. This year eight spirits will rise from their graves to recount the tales of their untimely ends at different locations throughout the graveyard. Audience members will be led through the burial ground by specters, encountering stories of disease, shipwrecks, and death by misadventure.
