Graveyards are the perfect setting for Halloween events, and privately-owned Congressional Cemetery is the place to be in October. Last Saturday it was the setting for the annual Dead Man’s Run, a 5K race that starts and ends in the cemetery, extending out to RFK Stadium. Volunteers dressed up and haunted the tombs. Here are photos from the 2013 event:
