Halloween Spectacle set for Oct. 28

The City of Marquette’s annual Halloween Spectacle is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 28. An alchemy of pageantry, music, theater, and dance will ignite the 600 block of West Bluff Street, behind Harlow Park, between North Seventh and Morgan Streets from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. A special opening procession will take place on the 100 block of West Washington Street at 6 p.m, directly following downtown trick or treating. The sidewalk procession will travel down Washington to Harlow Park. The Spectacle is free and open to all ages.

Harlow Park provides the perfect back drop for this year’s Spectacle. Equipped with built-in hillside “bleachers,” to enjoy performances. Bring a blanket or tarp for your seat at the year’s most anticipated performance. This year’s theme is the four elements. Don your costume and join the queens of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
