Event description

Description

October is a perfect time to learn about Austin's historic cemeteries. We can't wait to participate in this annual event that brings actors to the cemetery to teach us about its "residents." Of course, circling for parking might cause death by boredom before we arrive....

MAKE IT A TRANSIT ADVENTURE! Capital Metro, in partnership with Smart Trips Austin, is providing free Local Day Passes so you can spend more time exploring the graveyard than the parking lot!

*********************************************************

11:00 AM | CHECK-IN | Join us at Houndstooth Coffee on MLK to get a free Capital Metro Local Day Pass and return trip itinerary!

11:21 AM | CATCH CAP METRO | Martin Luther King/Alexander (Stop #5801) | #18 MetroBus -- every 15 minutes, 7 days a week!

11:30 PM | CEMETERY VISIT | The non-profit Save Austin Cemeteries will be offering free tours that cover the chilling, untimely deaths of “residents” of Oakwood, portrayed by actors at their grave sites. The 45-minute tours highlight historical – not scary – events from the 1870s-1910s and will start every 15-20 minutes between 10 am-3:15 pm near the Oakwood Chapel.

12:54 PM | RETURN TO HOUNDSTOOTH | 1509 Martin Luther King/Comal (Stop #870) | #18 MetroBus

1:00 PM | END OF EVENT | Capital Metro staff can help you end your tour earlier (or later), if needed.
