EDMOND, Okla. - Visitors in Edmond will be able to get in the Halloween spirit with a special tour of a local cemetery.

The Edmond Historic Preservation Trust will be hosting the 'Edmond Historic Cemetery Tours' at Gracelawn Cemetery.

Tickets are sold for $7 each for the tours on Oct. 11 and Oct. 18.

Actors will be at the gravesites of Edmond's 'founding fathers' and will play the part of those pioneers.

A few ghost stories and folk-lore of Edmond will also be told.

In the past, the tour has been surrounded by controversy.

Organizers say spectators at the ghost tours had to stay in the wagon wheel, the original part of the cemetery and weren’t allowed to wander.
