    It’s that time of year again: the days are shortening, there’s a nip of fall in the air, and parents are starting to plan Halloween activities for their kids. Here is a list of some kid-friendly haunted houses and other events to scare you and your little ones (but not too much!). Marshall contains one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in America, full of historic homes that create a perfect atmosphere for a Halloween excursion, and is conveniently located at the intersection of I-94 and I-69, making it an easily reachable destination for the entire Southwestern region.

    1. Cornwell’s Turkeyville Haunted Adventure

    Location: 18935 15 1/2 Mile Rd, Marshall, MI 49068
    Open: Saturdays 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in October
    Cost: $10/person

    The ever-popular Cornwell’s Turkeyville hosts a family-friendly Halloween experience including a corn maze, ghoulish hay cart ride, a House of Illusions, and a spooky train ride. Children 12 and under can pick a pumpkin from the patch to take home, while supplies last. The theme this year is “Carn-evil!,” so come prepared for some devilish fun!

    3. 21st Annual Marshall City Rec Haunted Trail

    Location: 900 S Marshall Ave, Marshall, MI 49068
    Open: Fridays and Saturdays 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. from October 18-26.
    Cost: $7/person

    This is Parks and Recreation like you’ve never seen it–the City of Marshall Recreation Department operates the Dance of Death and Haunted Trail, promising a creepy trek through the woods to a clearing where creatures from the other side put on a breathtaking show. Not for very young children, but tweens and teens should thoroughly enjoy it.

    4. Marshall District Public Library

    Location: 124 W Green St, Marshall, MI 49068
    Open: See details below
    Cost: FREE (registration required)

    The Marshall District Public Library is holding two events to cater to both younger and older kids. Grade 9 through 12 kids can take part in the Teen Murder Mystery Dinner Party from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 26. The dinner (yes, appetizers and dinner will be served) begins as an album release party for Debbie Gribson, but someone doesn’t make it out alive…

    Younger kids (ages 5 through 12) can visit the library on Tuesday, October 29 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for face-painting, pumpkin painting, games, movies, snacks, and surprises! Registration is required for both these events, which are perfect for those who prefer more cerebral pursuits.

    It can be challenging for parents to find Halloween events that strike the right balance between fun and fear for children of different ages and tolerances – hopefully the city of Marshall will provide you with just the right experience this year!
