October is here and many people are getting in Halloween spirit. During this time of year there are many activities and exhibits to choose from for entertainment. Haunted houses, cider mills, for example, are filling up daily with people.

Halloween is a time for kids and adults alike to dress up and have fun.

“I’m going to be a blow up dinosaur,” senior Ben Buhagiar said. “I love being able to dress up as something I’m not and seeing other people’s reactions.”

One event that is popular among teens is Scare Fest which is located on 28 mile and Gratiot. Scare Fest’s goal is to make customers feel terrified and get a rush of adrenaline. It is open Friday through Sunday. On Fridays and Saturdays they’re open from 7 P.M. to 12 A.M. and on Sundays from 7 P.M. to 10 P.M.

“I ran out screaming before my group entered the last exhibit because there was a clown, so I never went in,” senior Piper Baumann said. “There’s a lot of activities and it makes you feel alive again.”

Another place that is popular for all seasons is Cedar Point. Cedar point during October is only open on weekends 11 A.M. to 12 A.M. They call it Halloweekends. Halloweekends is full of many Halloween attractions. For example, haunted houses corn mazes, and roller coasters are some of the most popular attractions. Halloweekends is located in Sandusky, Ohio and will be closed after Oct 27 at 8 P.M.

“They shut most lights off later in the day and add smoke, also people dressed up in costumes walk around and try to scare people,” senior Jack Petruski said. “The Clown House was my favorite haunted house because the way they displayed the characters and the house in general made it look really terrifying.”
