For Halloween/Day of the Dead celebrations I'm hosting 2 cemetery tours, this being one of them. So come join me in Sylmar for a living history tour of Pioneer Cemetery!

From their website:

"Historical Re-enactments and Phantasmagorical Installations.

A fund-raiser to restore tombstones and preserve history.

The Pioneer cemetery became a historical landmark in 1961 but dates back to the late 1800's. Located in Sylmar, CA it is the second oldest cemetery in the San Fernando Valley. Within its grounds lie the remains of individuals who have their own histories to tell, from veterans of several wars to helpless infants, from victims of disease or natural disasters to those who simply had no where else to rest. However in the 60's and 70's vandalism became a huge problem for the cemetery and it's physical structures with many tombstones stolen, broken, or defaced. The cemetery's story is a fascinating one. Won't you help us put the cemetery into its proper historical context?"
