Macabre Manistee – ooooooooooo!!!

Macabre Manistee County (northern Michigan) is up and running – and continues through the end of October.

Harvest festivals, live theater, parties, costume contests, haunted attractions (including Manistee’s Ghost Ship), hayrides and much more!  Have you encountered the Gatekeeper yet?  There’s so much to do, it’s scary!

You can download a free Event Map from the website, which also lists late-breaking news and updates.  The Event Map also features 30 Manistee County business specials and discounts, good for the month of October!

Do you know someone with a decorated home?  Make sure they enter the Home Decorating Contest, with prizes including $100 in cash from the Blue Hare Magic Company, a $25 gift certificate from Wahr Hardware and a $20 gift certificate from Northern Spirits Gift Shoppe!  The entry form is also online, as well as instructions for entering via email.

It’s true – there’s wet weather expected this weekend, and some road construction on US-31 has a few people scratching their heads.  But there’s plenty to do, both indoors and out, from now until October 31 in Macabre Manistee County!

Happy Autumn,
