The family-friendly event, now in its eighth year, is a joint effort by the New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department and the New Bruanfels Cemetery Committee. It takes visitors to six graves to hear narratives of those at rest dramatized by volunteer actors. The scripts are compiled using archives and newspaper accounts. Graveside presentations are performed in authentic time-period costumes.
Tickets cost $30 per person, and proceeds benefit cemetery improvements. Pre-registration is required by visiting www.nbtexas.org/signup; stopping by the parks and recreation administrative office, 110 Golf Course Road, New Braunfels; or by calling 830-221-4350. Parking will be at Cypress Bend Park, 503 Peace Ave., New Braunfels, and participants will be taken by hayride to the historic Comal Cemetery.
