Spooky, Scary & Cute: Halloween in Detroit

I was looking for spooky, scary, Halloween-y Detroit type stuff to share with you all to get in the Halloween spirit. I didn’t have to look far; a few of my bloggy friends have shared some ghosty goodness.

John E.L. Tenney’s Weird Lectures gives us 5 Things to Do in Detroit Once You’re Dead. I’m pretty sure I should take the headline as a compliment, right? Well, I am and I love it!

If you’re still decorating for Halloween, I suggest you also check out his 10 tips for making your house a scary stop for trick-or-treaters. Actually, just check out the whole site, you’ll find out which cities in Michigan are the most haunted.

Over on The Night Train, you’ll find out about the haunted spots at Historic Fort Wayne. I’m pretty sure I’m going to stay away from the women’s bathroom.

Also, in her quest to find more haunted places in Detroit, she tells us of a mysterious happening at Farmington’s Oakwood Cemetery. Be sure to see the readers tips in the comments, it led to this post over on Midwest Guest about a similar phenomenon up north in Benzie County’s Putney Road.

I then found this story about the Ghost of Belle Isle and the urban legend of Old Al and the Pick Fort Shelby Hotel.

If you think Halloween has become too commercial and over the top, you have to head over to Sweet Juniper! and his Part Kid, Part Machine, All Cop post. I love the creativity and ingenuity that went into this. The photo shoot around Detroit is just genius.

So, whether you’re going to a costume party, hitting the bar scene, or trick-or-treating with you’re kids, have a great Detroit-style Halloween!

Do you have any Detroit ghost stories?

Thanks for mentioning my Putney Road story! It was a spooky sensation to roll backwards "uphill"

Thanks for the link! I just finished rounding up a few more, and included that Fort Shelby story. ISN'T IT GROSS??? Thankfully, probably also made-up.

And I haven't been able to stop looking at those Robo-kid pictures, either. Wow.

Happy Halloween!
