It sounds like a contradiction in terms: Saturday will be 'Family Fun Day' at Evergreen Cemetery from 1-3 p.m.
Geared toward celebrating the city's history, the celebration of the 1850s Protestant cemetery will include Victorian era games, hoop rolling, gravestone rubbing, jacks, hopscotch and scavenger hunts.
There will be music by Steve Bare and pioneer stories provided by the Santa Cruz Public Library, followed by an ice cream social with Polar Bear Ice Cream.
Evergreen Cemetery is located on Evergreen Street by Harvey West Park and the event is free.
The cemetery also has an annual Halloween program.
