EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick Museum will hold its annual candlelight tours of the historic Chestnut Hill Cemetery on October 14 and 15, 2017. During each tour, visitors will follow lighted paths through the cemetery as costumed re-enactors portray former residents of East Brunswick and the surrounding area.

The program brings these characters to life with displays and demonstrations over an approximate 45 minute tour.

Over 500 luminaria (candles in bags) will line the walking path for the tour, winding through the historic section of the cemetery. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own flashlights for safety.
