A twilight tour of a cemetery to learn about local history is planned for Sept. 24.
The 2022 Fountain Fairview Cemetery Lantern Tour will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the cemetery, 757 S. Santa Fe Ave.
This one-hour lantern tour takes place after dark and is not geared toward children, although children are permitted at the parent's discretion. Wear walking shoes.
Tickets are $20 per person and will be on sale at the entrance from 6 to 6:30 p.m. and limited to the first 100 people.
The tour will visit six residents, all portrayed by volunteers from Friends of the Fountain Fairview Cemetery. Guests will learn some Fountain history that has been handed down over the years and hear a few tales.
All proceeds will go toward restoration of the cemetery archway.
