Oakland Cemetery Halloween Tour 2014


Tour T-shirts available online only through Oct. 7

Atlanta’s Historic Oakland Cemetery welcomes back the sell-out Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tours for six nights only this October 17, 18, 19, 23, 24 and 25, with ticket sales open to members of Oakland’s Historic Foundation available on July 1 via TicketAlternative.com. Tickets will be available to the general public beginning July 15.

Your only chance to experience Oakland after dark, walk amidst the Cemetery’s beautifully lit gardens, escorted by a costumed docent. Witness the magnificent final resting place of Atlanta’s sons and daughters as they tell their stories during the Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tours.

Engage all of your senses and step back in time as you play audience to first-hand re-enactments, narrated by a host of Oakland’s eternal “residents,” which bring to life the city’s past. Be inspired by the cemetery’s nighttime views during this one-of-a-kind annual tradition.

Bring a flashlight and wear comfortable walking shoes. There will be beer, wine, and soft drinks for sale. Browse Oakland’s Museum Shop for memory-worthy souvenirs.

When Melissa Wakamo began her real estate career in 2004, her goal was to focus on her immediate area and get to know her neighbors. "I've had a lot of fun over the years helping my neighbors sell their homes and helping newcomers become a part of our community."

Melissa quickly became one of metro Atlanta's top producing agents and consistently performed in the top 1% of all Atlanta agents. By 2009, Melissa's real estate team had grown to include several agents and support staff, dedicated to providing exceptional service to buyers and sellers in Atlanta's intown neighborhoods.

In 2010, Melissa transitioned Red Robin REALTORS® into an independently owned boutique brokerage. Even in the tough real estate market during that time, Red Robin REALTORS® continued to outperform other small brokerages and was able to help buyers and sellers adapt to the rapid changes in the market.

In 2017, Melissa had the opportunity to merge the Red Robin REALTORS team with another like-minded boutique brokerage, Keller Knapp Realty. The two community-focused organizations bring together more than 100 agents, including 3 of the top 10 agents in metro Atlanta. With offices in Oakhurst, Ormewood Park and Midtown, Keller Knapp Realty and Red Robin REALTORS team are the top boutique real estate firm in Atlanta.

In her role as Managing Broker, Melissa provides agent training, marketing and strategic oversight for the Brokerage, ensuring that the brokerage maintains its focus and commitment to the intown market.

Melissa's active participation in various neighborhood organizations and charitable efforts, as well as her passion for antiques, cooking, and gardening, keep her busy and in touch with the community.
