What better way to warm up for Halloween? 
Fortuna, known as the Friendly City, will host a decidedly unfriendly experience. At Sunrise Cemetery, which overlooks this historic coastal logging town, accursed souls of all kinds will rise from the dead in the 8th annual Grave Matters & Untimely Departures.
Acclaimed regional actors in period clothing will bring dozens of real dead people back to life, hovering around their tombstones and recounting the unfortunate, often scandalous tales that put them underneath.
The $15 tickets can be purchased at the Fortuna Chamber of Commerce or the day of the performance.
Each tour runs approximately 50 minutes and will take place rain or shine. Comfortable shoes are encouraged.  Parking at the cemetery. No vehicles are allowed in the cemetery during the performance.
