What’s Happening In Northern Michigan: Apple Festival, A Knight Of Murder, Haunted Halloween Progressive Dinner

Northern Michigan’s News Leader

Ghosts, goblins and good food. Courtney Sheffer is back from the West Michigan Tourist Association to fill us in on some seasonal fun you can check out this weekend with a look at What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.

Fall is in the air, and Northern Michigan orchards are busy harvesting bushels of fresh, ripe apples in preparation for the 38th Annual Apple Festival, taking place in downtown Charlevoix this weekend. More than 30 types of apples will be available, as well as other fall harvest items. The apple festival includes fun for the entire family, including the apple fest arts and craft show, kid’s activities, a family fun run, fall color cruises and guided mushroom home tours.

The Hotel Frankfort will be hosting a murder mystery dinner on October 28 and 29, titled “A Knight of Murder.” Guests are invited to celebrate the marriage of Baron Bartholomew and Lady Diana, but will find themselves at the scene of the crime, and work to find the culprit and clear your own name. Tickets for the evening are just $35 each and include dinner. Register early to get your choice of character for the evening!

On Friday, October 28, Petoskey will promote its ghostly history with a progressive dinner throughout local haunted establishments. Learn about the crying toddler, the employee who fell in love with a ghostly visitor, the mysterious fan, the woman in the wall, and much more, as you treat yourself to good eats in Petoskey’s very haunted downtown. Appetizers will be at Stafford’s Perry Hotel, entree at City Park Grill and dessert at Jesperson’s. The dinner will last approximately three hours. Tickets are $45 per person and reservations are required.
