October is upon us, and with it comes ghoulish fun and haunted happenings. Here are five unusual ideas for celebrating Halloween in Southwest Michigan:

    Train Ride at Eden Springs
  1. Ride the miniature haunted train through Eden Springs Park. Kids of all ages will be spellbound with this historic train ride at Eden Springs Park, formerly the House of David. The park is adorned with family-friendly decorations to get everyone in the Halloween spirit. For just $4 per ride, this annual event runs from 5-9 p.m. Saturdays & Sundays Oct. 16 & 17, 23 & 24, and Oct. 29 (Friday) & 30 (Saturday). 
  2. Glass Pumpkins at Water Street GlassWorksPick up one-of-a-kind glass pumpkins at Water Street Glassworks. If you’re looking for something different this year at the pumpkin patch, pick up a one-of-a-kind glass pumpkin hand-crafted by artists at Water Street Glassworks in Benton Harbor’s Arts District. As an added feel-good, 100% of your purchase helps support the nonprofit’s programming throughout the year. 
  3. Learn what lurks deep within the forest at Fernwood Botanical Garden. If you’re a fan of the classic monsters like werewolves, vampires, witches and more, you’ll love this presentation set at this picturesque gem in Southwest Michigan. While you’re on the grounds, you should also check out the pumpkin house! 
  4. Haunted Scarousel SkeletonsRide if you dare — the Haunted Scarousel. Enter the spooky Silver Beach Carousel House and beware the headless horseman. Get your tickets for your hour-long reservation, with a discounted rate through October — just $6 for all the rides you can fit in an hour! 
  5. Eat, drink, and be scary at the Round Barn Winery Estate. Wear your most spooky, witty, or glamorous costume and celebrate Hallowine at the final Jammin’ in the Vineyard for 2021. Dance to live music, eat delicious foods and, most importantly, enjoy wine and candy tasting combinations. 

When you’re all spooked out, be sure to plan a fall color tour in your leisure time. Colors generally peak in Southwest Michigan in the last week of October.
