Marshall, MI – The skeletons are back and will haunt downtown Marshall from September 25-October 31. Each year, more than 30 skeletons in various costumes and poses are displayed around town for visitors to view and photograph. As one of the most anticipated events in Marshall, and because numerous events were canceled last year due to COVID, Choose Marshall is putting on a supersized SkeletonFest Kick-off Party. Make no bones about it, this party will be bigger and better than ever.

Join us in the parking lot at the corner of Michigan Avenue and South Hamilton Street beginning at 2pm. Music will be playing throughout the afternoon and evening starting with The Wilde Giants from 3-6pm.  There also will be face painting, balloon animals and food truck vendors. New this year are the Viking Warriors offering a chance for you to step back in time and see into the life of a Viking. This experience is sure to be fun for both kids and adults.

We’ll also welcome the Cosplay Crusaders from 5-7pm. Show up in costume and party with your favorite superheroes. Since there are no phone booths in town, and you need a place to change into your superhero outfit, the Choose Marshall Welcome Center at 323 West Michigan Avenue has public restrooms at the front of the building.

As the party winds down and the kids are worn out, the adults are invited to dance the night away with The Fat Animals, performing on South Jefferson Street next to Grand River Brewery from 6-10pm. Make a night of it, grab a drink in the social district and check out the skeletons in the dark.
