Halloween Spectacle set for Oct. 28

The City of Marquette’s annual Halloween Spectacle is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 28.

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.
