EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick Museum will hold its annual candlelight tours of the historic Chestnut Hill Cemetery on October 13 and 14, 2018. 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 approximately 45 minute tour.
Over 500 luminaries (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 additional safety.
There will be light refreshments served at the end of each tour. The candlelight tours are open to the general public, but are not appropriate for anyone with walking problems or children in strollers. Free parking is available on site.
The tours also serve as the East Brunswick Museum’s major fundraising event for the year. The 2018 Candlelight Tours will be held on October 13 and 14 from 5:30 P.M. to 8 P.M . each night.
The cost of the event is $10.00 for adults and $4.00 for children 12 and under.
