MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Another Queen City tradition came roaring back as the 12th Annual Rose Hill Cemetery tour was held Saturday night.

The line ran around the entire block as people waited to get into the city’s most unique attraction.

The Rose Hill Cemetery tour takes you through different stations and tells the story of the cemetery’s more unique residents.

The tour ends at the gravesite of Meridian’s very own gypsy queen.

Actors and musicians volunteered their time and gave their best performances for the large crowds that came out.

Hamburgers were sold to raise money for Calvary Baptist Church.

“I think it’s so interesting about the history of Meridian. I always learn something new about Meridian,” said History Buff, Robin Dickerson.

“Well, I mean some people need excitement and it’s just a good way to socialize,” said Attendee, Preston Martin.

Organizers said that this year had one of the highest attendances they have seen.

The tour was not held last year because of COVID 19.
