The Cathedral’s famous Crypt Crawls will be held tomorrow, Saturday, October 29, for those looking to explore the rarely-seen depths of the gothic building.
Those brave enough to embark on the tour will hear the stories of the entombed, learn the origins of Halloween as a Celtic New Year celebration and later transformation into All Hallows Eve, and creep into the Cathedral’s crypt.
Please note: space on the tours is limited and participants must be 12 years of age or older.
In addition to the tours, two screenings of the classic silent film Nosferatu with a live organ accompaniment will be held tonight, Friday, October 28, at 7p.m. and 10p.m. Following the film, goblins and ghosts will fill the Cathedral for the Procession of the Ghouls, delighting the audience with tricks and treats and all the spooky Halloween fun.
To finish out the season, the Cathedral will also commemorate the feasts of All Saints and All Souls on Tuesday, November 1 and Wednesday, November 2, honoring the traditions of Día de los Muertos.
