Held the second Tuesday of October, Tales of the Crypt is an annual Mount Holly Event during which drama students from Parkview Arts & Science Magnet High School are each given a person buried in the cemetery to research. They then prepare short monologues or dialogues, complete with period costumes, to be performed in front of the researched person’s grave. Award-winning local costumer Debi Manire will once again provide the wonderful historical characters’ costumes. Audiences are led through the cemetery from grave to grave by guides with candles. Al
