Halloween & Trick-or-Treating


Halloween and Trick-or-Treating

The skies are heavy with ominous clouds...biting cold air envelops our bodies...and the trees are ablaze with color. It's late October--time for pumpkins, ghouls, and witches to come out and scare innocent souls, in search for a treat. Of course, we're talking about Halloween, that most frightening time of year. West Michigan is not only beautiful in October, but there are plenty of events going on to satisfy the timid...and those that dare to be scared!

Below are the events and trick or treating times for Ludington, Scottville, Pentwater, Hart, and Manistee. In addition to Halloween, check out the other fun fall events going on in the area.
