I went to the Halloween tour last yr, and it was a lot of fun! I am told my the Oakland Foundation that tickets are typically sold out my Labor Day. So, you must buy your ticket early (as in July or August) if you want to make sure tickets are still available. Make sure you get tickets for Oct 29 tour at 7 pm.
You may want to consider MARTA or carpooling, as this event is really popular and gets quite crowded.
