SOLD OUT-Soul Crawl: Nighttime History Tours

This event is SOLD OUT for both nights

BOTH NIGHTS ARE SOLD OUT AND TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.


Laurel Hill Cemetery’s classic Halloween flashlight tours have become a mainstay of the season. Experience the enchanting art and landscape after dark, as an experienced tour guide leads you along winding, dimly lit pathways. The extended nighttime walking tours will focus on the cemetery’s rich history, and of course, some of the liveliest spirits buried within. Tours will last approximately two hours and will be followed by seasonal refreshments and cocktails aside blazing fire pits.

Soul Crawl: Nighttime History Tours are scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm, sharp each night. Attendees are advised to dress warmly, wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring a flashlight.

Departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse at 3822 Ridge Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19132. Please note - youth and children must be accompanied by an adult.
