DeKalb is home to year-round festivals. We have something for everyone.

Tour of Southern Ghosts

October 13 - 29, 2017

Stone Mountain Park

"A Tour of Southern Ghosts" is held during the Halloween season so the stories are a little scary, many times humorous, but never too frightening and always appropriate for young children. Each night offers a different cast of six storytellers, which means audience members may return to "A Tour of Southern Ghosts" on additional nights to hear a new collection of stories.
