Celebrating Halloween in Jackson
Jackson is a wonderful place to live at any time of year. The downtown area is very inviting, full of great stores and restaurants to visit, and there are always lots of events happening around town all year round. Halloween is no exception! There are plenty of ways for people of all ages to enjoy a little bit of spooky fun right in the neighborhood. Our Walnut Ridge and English Meadows manufactured housing communities are both located in this wonderful city and if you live in one of these communities, here are some fun ways you can get ready for Halloween.
Rosemary’s Baby Brew & View at the Michigan Theater
Get a babysitter for the kids and head on over to the Michigan Theater on Mechanic Street for a special screening of the 1968 horror classic Rosemary’s Baby, starring Mia Farrow and Ruth Gordon, on October 23rd. Admission is just $3 and there will be domestic beer for sale for $3 per cup. You’ll also have the chance to win a special prize! The doors open at 8:30 PM and the movie starts at 9:00 PM.
Hanover Horton Corn Maze
The Hanover Horton Corn Maze is a Halloween tradition in the Jackson area! The maze is open every Saturday and Sunday throughout the month of October. In addition to being able to try your hand at navigating the corn maze, you’ll also be able to enjoy other fun activities like cider and donuts, wagon rides, and pumpkin carving. The Hanover Horton Corn Maze is located at the Hanover Horton Conklin Reed Organ and History Museum at 101 Hanover Street in Hanover, MI. Admission is $3.
The Corpse Barn Shock Haunt
Looking for a good scare? Why not see if you can make it through the Corpse Barn Shock Haunt. The Corpse Barn Shock Haunt is located on 6220 Brooklyn Road (M-50) in the second largest barn in Jackson County. The Corpse Barn is open every Friday and Saturday throughout the month of October from 7:00 PM to midnight and from 8:30 PM to midnight on Halloween night. Admission is $13 per person or $35 for a speed pass. Please note that although all ages are welcome, this event is geared more toward more adult crowds.
Goblin Walks at Dahlem Center
For some Halloween fun that’s safe for the kids, the Dahlem Center has annual Goblin Walks, where visitors can take guided walks through the nature center, along trails all decorated with pumpkins and other Halloween decor, but without being scary. Once you get to the end of the trail, you can enjoy some snacks, music, and other Halloween fun!
These are just a few of the fun things a person can do in Jackson to celebrate Halloween. When you live in either our Walnut Ridge or English Meadows communities, you might not even have to leave the community for some Halloween fun. Many of our communities organize holiday activities like parties in the community clubhouse and trunk or treat events. Don’t let another holiday season pass you by! Take a look at some of the manufactured homes for sale in our communities and let us know if there’s anything you’re interested in. We’d love to have you spend the holidays in one of our communities!
