The Waukegan Park District and the Waukegan Historical Society are partnering to host the 28th Annual Oakwood Cemetery Walk this Saturday, September 9th! The Oakwood Cemetery Walk is an annual "living history" event showcasing the rich history of Waukegan using costumed actors to portray local historic figures with connections to the cemetery and Waukegan.
The theme of the 28th Annual Oakwood Cemetery Walk is “Get Waukegan Out of the Mud,” featuring stories about initiatives to improve the infrastructure in Waukegan. Participants will experience stories about the first automobile rules of the road, mandated labor on streets and roads, and more.
Tickets in advance are available for $10 and limited tickets will be available on the day of the event for $20. The 28th Annual Oakwood Cemetery Walk will be held rain or shine. Find more information and tickets at the Waukegan Park District website.
