Alhambra Cemetery Halloween Tour

The tour is on Friday, October 31, from 6:30 -7:45pm at the Alhambra Pioneer Cemetery. The cemetery, established in 1851, has stunning views of the Carquinez Strait and a rich history. A tour guide will introduce you to families with names you know and some you don’t. You’ll learn more about local war heroes, personalities, politicians and a most creative caretaker. Tours are designed to enlighten, not frighten. Wear sturdy comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. Evenings can be cool. Sorry, no children please! To reserve a tour space, please call Martinez Recreation at 372-3510 or register on line at www.cityofmartinez.org.
