Where's the scares? Here's some October frightful fun for the Blue Water Area!

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.

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 13th and the 20st, 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.

Would you like to take a straaange journey? How about one into the world’s favorite rock’n’roll musical! The Rocky Horror Show Live! returns for its eighth season to the McMorran Place Theatre in Port Huron. Running October 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th, tickets are now available at the McMorran box office and Ticketmaster. Come down and be a part of one of the Bluewater Area's favorite Halloween traditions!

It's wouldn't be Halloween without a hayride and a corn maze at an apple orchard...especially if they're said to be haunted. On Friday and Saturday evenings through October 27th, McCallum's Orchard in Grant Twp. will be presenting Haunted Nights. Find out more about the frightful family fun here.

As Count Dracula begins to exert his will upon the residents of London, they try to piece together the clues of his appearances—in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate. Rich with both humor and horror, this stageplay at the Citadel Stage in Port Huron paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker's famous vampire. This production runs through the month of October. Get your tickets here.

What would October be without some scary movies? This year enjoy two full nights of them at two different locations in Port Huron. Desmond District Demons will be presenting horrifying competition of independently produced horror films from all around the world at the Sperry’s Moviehouse on the 26th & 27th. Check out what movies will be showing and how to get tickets at the Desmond District Demons website.

On the last Saturday of October (and just a couple days before the trick or treaters come to your door) enjoy Halloween in Lexington with Children's Costume Parade, Pet Costume Parade, Children's Activities & More!

Also on October 27th, Port Huron City Rec invites lovers of candy to join them at Sanborn Park at 10am for a Halloween Stroll. To register for this event click here.
