From the website:
This unique and highly entertaining daytime event transforms Long Beach’s two oldest cemeteries into a “Living History” tour. It has grown into a local cultural phenomenon that brings the cemetery to near capacity with living people strolling about listening to tales of the dead. Strolling amidst the old tombstones, tour participants gather at selected grave stops to hear first hand tales that every cemetery plot has a story. Ten characters from the past recount their life, accomplishments, contributions and influences. Glimpses of living, customs, attitudes and culture provide fascinating insights into bygone eras.
