After surviving the blood moon, we’re ready for a spooky stroll or two through Lake View Cemetery, Capitol Hill’s densely-packed final resting place full of famous and not so famous dead people. Pedestrian-friendly community org Feet First is leading a series of Haunted History Hike tours through the month of October:

On Thursdays and Saturdays through the month of October, let Feet First Neighborhood Walk Ambassadors take you on a stroll through the spookier side of Seattle. These 75-minute walks in historic Lake View Cemetery highlight the history and legends of Seattle’s pioneers, entrepreneurs and eccentrics.

Thursday’s tour starts at 3 PM. You can purchase $15 tickets for upcoming walks here. “Tours take place rain or shine, so please dress appropriately,” Feet First notes.

Lake View is located at 1554 15th Ave E. If you’re considering your own tour, the cemetery is open “9am to dusk daily” with the gates closing around 6 PM this time of year. Also, boo!
