Apalachicola-- Hallows-eve, as some call it, brings many ghouls and goblins out for trick or treating. But people in Apalachicola took Saturday night to learn from residents of the past.

Hundreds of people packed the Old Historic Chestnut Cemetery in downtown Apalachicola Saturday night to learn some history about those who once lived and worked in the small town.

On top of teaching these visitors some history about the town through ghost stories, the Apalachicola Historical Society also hopes to bring awareness and support to help restore and maintain the historic cemetery.

Event organizers say Saturday night's ghost walk was an opportunity to bring some light to those who made Apalachicola what it is today.

"It's going back and telling people even myself history and its letting people know about the past," said Annette Fagan who was playing Mary Fuller.

"I hope they walk away learning about the rich history about the community and the founding father and just what a great city it is," said Event Organizer, Dolores Roux.

With such a large turn out Saturday evening, organizers say they are already looking forward to planning for this event again next year.
