Marquette is full of spine-chilling, bar crawling, frightening festivities in the eerie nights leading up to Halloween. Here’s some events that are sure to be Halloween hits & favorites:


10/26: You know what they say about idle hands, so be sure to get up, get out, and get your hands on some tickets to the UP Shakespeare Festival: Frankenstein at the Ore Dock. Tickets are on sale for $15 General Public, $13 Seniors & Students.

Ore Dock Brewing Company, Marquette, Michigan

10/27: Something uncanny is happening in the attic at the Ore Dock Brewing Company. It’s B.Y.O.T (toast) for a showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. So come on out for a chilled craft beverage, and a cult classic. 

Vista Theater in downtown Negaunee, Michigan

10/28 & 10/29: Is it just me, or did I see you shiver with antici-pation, waiting for The Vista Theatre’s Rocky Horror Picture Show? Although there will not be a live performance this year, the Vista is offering a chance to catch this Halloween flick in their historic playhouse. Tickets are $3, or $10 for a group of 4. Popcorn and “funbags” will also be available for purchase, for audience partici-pation purposes.


10/29: Wait till you feast your eyes on this! You definitely don’t want to miss the downtown Halloween Spectacle. “A large-scale community outdoor performance of giant puppetry, pageantry, music, theatre, and dance.” The opening ceremony will commence at 6pm, the closing ceremony concludes at 7:45pm.
