Butzloff Memorial, Oaklawn Cemetery

If you didn't get enough of the urban legends in last week's issue, check out Saturday's Haunted Hike through the Euclid/St. Paul neighborhood, one of the oldest in St. Pete. The guided tour explores old homes and landmarks that have given rise to legends like Sweetie Pie, the sewer-dwelling, man-eating alligator, and the jilted brides of Euclid Estates. Ticket proceeds benefit the ESP Neighborhood Association and Community Action Stops Abuse (CASA). On Sunday, head across the bay for the Tampa Historical Society's annual fundraising Gothic Graveyard Walk at Oaklawn Cemetery. The 156-year-old burial ground is the final resting place of Vicente Martinez Ybor (the founder of Ybor City), 13 former mayors, pirates, slaves and a large group of yellow fever victims. Nothing like a mass grave to get you in the mood for Halloween, right? Haunted Hike, Sat., Oct. 28, 6:30-8:30 p.m., tours leave every 15 minutes from 13th Street and 13th Avenue N., St. Petersburg, $5 adults/$1 kids, 727-895-0380, www.espna.org; and Gothic Graveyard Walk, Sun., Oct. 29, 3-4 p.m., Morgan and Harrison streets, Tampa, $5 suggested donation, 813-831-5214.
