Spooky tour will get locals in the Halloween spirit

My family is a little nervous about going trick or treating this year, and we’re not sure if anyone will be passing candy out anyway because of COVID. Is there anything we can do to get into the Halloween spirit in Medford that you could suggest? Maybe something a little scary?

— Dale S., Medford

We do have something a little spine-tingling in mind, Dale, but you’re going to have to go the most haunted place in Medford.

What we’re thinking of is a visit to the city’s historic Eastwood/I.O.O.F. Cemetery at 1581 Siskiyou Blvd.

But don’t worry, you don’t have to go there at night.

A 90-minute tour of the graves and tombs will start at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Volunteer guide Jay Robinson will be on hand to lead you from grave to grave at the 130-year-old cemetery.

This is a free event, open to the public. Preregistration is not required, but masks and social distancing are. Wear comfortable walking shoes to make your way through this necropolis.

Those who want to take the Halloween tour should gather at 2 p.m. at the mausoleum.

Maybe you can find appropriately scary masks for the event, Dale.
