2012 flashlight Cemetery Tour Tickets now available


All you need is your flashlight and your curiosity to join us on the Cemetery Tours by Flashlight. Expect to be engaged, moved, fascinated, unsettled, surprised and definitely more aware of the history of southern Alberta as you learn fascinating tales of the people who don’t get to leave the cemetery at the end of the tour.

 Two 50-minute tours are planned for Friday September 30 and again on Saturday October 1 at 8:00 and 9:00 pm.

Three 50-minute tours will be offered daily on Friday October 7, Saturday October 8, Thursday October 20, and Monday October 24 at 8:00, 9:00 and 10:00 pm.

Tickets for each tour are now available at the Galt Museum Store only at $5/person, or $4/person for annual pass holders. 

A limited number of tickets are available for each tour – this is a popular program which sells out each year.  Tickets must be paid for at time of ordering.

Ticket holders meet at the St. Patrick’s Cemetery gates on far west end of 6 Avenue North.  Be sure to dress warmly, wear good sturdy walking shoes, bring along a flashlight and, just maybe, somebody to hold hands with!
