Here is a list of fall and Halloween events to do in October:

Some of Macon’s earliest citizens are buried in this cemetery which spans approximately four acres. Old Town Cemetery, located at Cherry Street and 7th Street, operated from 1825 to 1840 as Macon’s first municipal burial site. All the tombs are oriented to the east to receive the first light at daybreak, according to an old tradition of the 19th century. However, be careful where you step when visiting, as many headstones were destroyed when the cemetery was decommissioned.
