Now that it's officially October, it's time to start thinking about all things Halloween. Costumes, candy, and of course, parties. Upon seeing the headline for TimeOut's article of '10 best Halloween events in the U.S,' it was obvious that Michigan had to fall on the list somewhere. We know how to take advantage of having fun when those fall temps hit and we know how to throw a good party to celebrate spooky season.

Which states made the list?

The obvious choice, but we were still glad to see Salem, MA make the list with its 'Festival of the Dead.' Other interesting events include the Thriller Parade in Lexington, KY and the Spooktacular Hot Air Balloon Festival in Scottsdale, AZ. Croton-on-Hudson, NY took the #1 spot with The Great Jack 'O' Lantern Blaze.

Which Michigan city made the list?

Not only did Michigan make the Top 10 list, but we actually made the Top 5. Romeo, MI came in at #4 with the Terror on Tilson Street event. The elaborate displays that have included haunted pirate ships, a haunted hotel, and a killer-clown house start to pop up in early October.
