Cemetery Lantern Tour, sold out
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm EDT
Once a year this event shares more of Rugby’s true stories about real people of the past than any other. Hear in their own words from letters, diaries & other accounts what brought 10 settlers to Rugby and what their ultimate fate was. Some met tragic ends. Others had long, interesting lives. All are buried in Rugby’s Laurel Dale Cemetery, site of the event. Because it’s sacred ground, we limit participants to 40 — and it always sells out. And it has again this year! Proceeds benefit nonprofit Historic Rugby.
As a bonus, that same afternoon at 4 p.m. EDT is a FREE concert by the Rugby Cornet Band in the Visitor Centre’s Rebecca Johnson Theatre. No ticket required. After the concert, grab a bite or a drink at The Canteen food truck before heading over to the Lantern Tour (if you have a reservation)!
