of civil war, suicide, celery, snakes, and other surprising
scenarios will be center stage at The Oviedo Preservation
Project's Seventh Annual Cemetery Tour. This event will take
place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
on Monday, Oct. 15
at the Oviedo Cemetery (across from Oviedo High School on
S.R. 426), and your $2 donation is appreciated, though not
is welcome to join us for an hour-long visit with some of
Oviedo's founders. We'll be touring the cemetery under the
guidance of historical figures who've come to life for the
evening to introduce us to their dearly departed friends.
Please join us to hear stories from actors in costume who
will tell about themselves and about what Oviedo was like
when they were alive. For more information, contact Megan Sladek
at 407-365-1433 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- How much does it cost? There will be no "ticket taker,"
but your $2 donation dropped in the bins located around
the tour is very much appreciated.
the tour scary? Not exactly. It's based on real
history, and there were wars and disease and things like
we wear costumes? Not unless you're an actor in the
tour! Please let us know if you'd like to get involved!
it be dark? At the end, yes. You may want to bring a
flashlight for the last portion of the tour. Light is important
for a majority of the tour so you can learn more about the
cemetery and its features - that's why we start when you
can still see where you're going.
kids come? Absolutely! The tour is crafted with an eye
toward entertaining kids as young as 2. We go to great lengths
to make history come alive so it won't be painfully boring
for anyone who comes. In fact, the cemetery tour makes history
is it? Across from Oviedo High School (off 426) west
of downtown Oviedo.
- Where should I park? Along the street on Aulin Avenue and Clark Street (the roads closest to the cemetery)
- Will there be mosquitos? It's very likely. You'll probably want to wear long sleeves and pants or mist with some bug spray before arriving.
- What if I get hungry? We have snacks at the end of the tour, so stick around!
