Annual Cemetery Walk Coming Up This Weekend

Organizers say the annual Cookeville Cemetery Walk, scheduled for this Saturday night, is designed to be educational, not ghostly. The candlelit walk will visit the grave sites of seven former citizens as a cast of local volunteers recreate their lives in autobiographical monologues. According to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen, the seven were chosen because of their prominent roles in Cookeville history. The event, the fifth of its kind since 2002, is a fundraiser for the Cookeville History and Depot museums. There will be two walks -- one at 6 pm and one starting at 8:30 pm. Tickets are fifteen dollars and are available at the box office of the Cookeville Performing Arts Center.
