Marshall Skeleton Fest & Kick-Off Party 2018

They’re Back! 

Come join in on the fun with the 2nd Annual Marshall Skeleton Fest & Kick Off Party, Saturday, September 29 from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. This free, family friendly event will feature Fabulous Faces by Sara face painting,  balloon twisting by Ballooney Bin, and live music by the Deep Fried Pickle Project!  There will also be food and drinks for purchase and more.

The Kick Off Party will be at the City parking lot on the corner of Hamilton St. and Michigan Ave. next to the Post Office.  Stroll through town to see the life-sized skeletons and be sure to get some selfies with them!  Don’t forget to share them at #MarshallSkeletonFest !

After the Kick Off Party ends, the Pub & Grub Crawl goes from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm, with local pubs and restaurants bringing out their themed food and drink creations!  Check back later for a map and app of the participating establishments.  The wizards of brewing at Dark Horse Brewing Company are once again creating some limited edition brews just for the occasion.
