GREAT FALLS — The 14th annual 'Waking The Dead' tours will be held on Sunday, June 30, 2024, at Highland Cemetery (2010 33rd Avenue South).

Ten graves at Highland Cemetery will be visited as storytellers present the story of those buried there.

Tours begin at 1 pm and again at 3 pm.

Tickets are $20 to ride or $15 to walk, and are available at Kaufmans Menswear (415 Central Avenue) in downtown Great Falls.

Cars will park in the field inside the cemetery gate where three trailers and trucks will be waiting to be loaded.

At the conclusion of the tours, participants will receive a booklet with photos and the featured grave stories provided by Croxford Funeral Home.

This annual event is scheduled on the Sunday closest to the birthday of Great Falls founder Paris Gibson (June 30).
