Let’s have some skele-fun!

Welcome to Fall in Marshall, Michigan! Home to haunted carriage rides, spook-tacular events for adults and kids alike, and bone-chilling cemetery walks, there’s always something happening here. September 28, experience the Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween artisan craft show at the Calhoun County Fairgrounds. For years, this group of hand-picked artists has gathered in the spirit of Halloween. On this day of magic, the veil is lifted, and you are invited to an enchanted world of seasonal artwork. Later in the day, head to Skeletonfest—a family-friendly party from 2-5 pm with live music, balloon animals, face painting, games and food vendors featuring favorite seasonal snacks. Be sure to walk through town for selfies with over 30 life-sized skeletons whimsically dressed and posed and remaining to greet visitors through the month of October. Nighttime brings the adult Pub ‘n Grub Crawl, where restaurants and pubs feature special deals on boo-tiful dishes and wicked potions.

Cornwell’s Turkeyville hosts a Haunted Adventure each weekend in October. Featuring hayrides, a haunted train, a corn maze, and cider and donuts, the month-long celebration also lets you pick from the pumpkin patch. Another great place for seasonal family fun is Bosserd’s Family Farm, where you’ll be greeted by giant haystacks, a corn maze, a pumpkin patch and other games.
