What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: Fall Festival, Haunted Village, Spooktacular Saturdays

Fall is in full swing, and as October rolls along we’ll start to see more Halloween-themed events.

Courtney Sheffer from the West Michigan Tourist Association has more on What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.

Frankfort Fall Festival

Head to Frankfort this Saturday for its annual Fall Festival.

It kicks off with a pancake breakfast at the Hotel Frankfort.

Catch the Fall Festival Parade at 11 a.m., followed by a pie-eating contest, live music from the Scottville Clown Band, giant pumpkins, and even helicopter rides.

Make sure you don’t miss the crazy pumpkin drop, taking place near the boat launch at 2:30 p.m.

Haunted Village Trick-or-Treat

Historic White Pine Village in Ludington will be transformed into a Halloween town for the Haunted Village Trick-or-Treat.

It’s a family-friendly trick-or-treat event on October 19.

The cost is just $6 per person, and ages 2 and under are free.

Also in Ludington, downtown businesses will open their doors and sidewalks to trick-or-treaters on Saturday, October 26, for a fun Halloween afternoon.

Spooktacular Saturdays

Get outside for a day full of fall activities during Spooktacular Saturdays at Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville on October 19 and 26!

Go for a wagon ride, visit the petting zoo, carve your own pumpkin, and lots more!

When it gets dark, ride the chairlift to the top of the mountain to make your way down the haunted trail.
