Hang out with 27 dead Atlanta mayors on pre-election cemetery tour

You can spend some quality time with 27 former Atlanta mayors in advance of the Nov. 7 election. 

There’s just one catch: They’re all dead.

Oakland Cemetery is holding a one-day-only walking tour of the graves of more than two dozen former Atlanta mayors on Sunday, Nov. 5. In addition to seeing their gravesites, participants will learn about the mayors’ policies, and legacies.
