Oakland Cemetery reconnects with its Victorian roots with Sunday in the Park on Oct. 7 from noon to 6 p.m. Now in its 33rd year, the event draws thousands of visitors to the historic cemetery in southeast Atlanta.

The celebration will feature live musicians, dancers, artists, food and more. There will also be a Victorian costume contest and photography contest, carriage tours and free walking tours with an opportunity to enter some of the magnificent mausoleums. The children’s area will feature crafts and old-fashioned games.

Oakland’s traditional Teddy Bear Tea will entertain kids of all ages with storytelling. There is a suggested donation of $5 per person, with children three and under free. Proceeds from Sunday in the Park benefit the Historic Oakland Foundation. For more information, visit oaklandcemetery.com.
