Halloween is creeping up closer every day. The ghosts and ghouls will be making the bumps in the night often through the month of October and the Blue Water Area has quite a few things happening where you can be part of a hauntingly good time.
North Park Campgrounds in Harbor Beach get all spooky with Halloween Weekends. Campers will be decorating their sites in ghoulish finery and both Saturdays will feature a costume contest and a parade, hayrides, trick or treating, a live dj in the evening and much more. The campground will also be hosting a 2nd Halloween weekend on the 7th through the 9th. To make reservations call 989-479-9554.
The world's record for the most simultaneously carved pumpkins is 1,060. On Saturday, October 15th Marine City plans on breaking that record 140. At an event called Pumpkins, Popcorn & Politics, 1,200 pumpkins will be set up in Nautical Mile Park and people are invited to join in to set a new Guinness World Record. "But where does the popcorn and politics part of the event come from?" you ask? Well, along with the pumpkin carving, Marine City is also going to shoot for setting the record for making the longest string of popcorn. The politics part is to remind people to vote in the upcoming election. To learn more about this event and to register to be part of it visit the Pumpkins, Popcorn & Politics website.
The buildings of the Sanilac County Historical Village and Museum in Port Sanilac all have a storied past. Did you know some of them might be ghost stories though? On the evenings of Saturday, October 15 and the 22nd, spirits of the past lurk the grounds and structures at the Haunted Village and Spook Walk. Come warm up around the bonfire and sample goodies at the Food Boooooth after getting chills from a walk through the cemetery in the woods and meeting the likes Wicked Witch, Dr. Loop, the Mad Hatter and the Grim Reaper. If that is not enough of shriekful thrills, the village also has day of family fun on the 22nd at Boooo Fest.
