With the halloween season rapidly approaching– one of college students’ favorite times of the year– there’s always the question of what things are there actually to do within Saginaw, Bay City, Midland, and nearby areas that seem to often stump those who may not be familiar to the area.
I, meanwhile, grew up a Bay City native and knows there’s plenty of things to do in the area that are often overlooked, or may not be somewhere you may look otherwise if you’re unsure what to look for.
It’s a great time to get connected with your community and learn more about businesses and services you might not have realized were available otherwise.
With that being said, here are some of my personal top ten things to do in the tri-city area you may not know exist for the Halloween season.
Number three – Halloween Line Dancing
Now, I’m personally not much of a dancer myself, but I know there are a lot of students at SVSU who do, and especially why I put line dancing on here in the first place. On Sunday October 29th from1-4pm under the lights of the Midland Street Bridge Memorial in Bay City, hosted by the Midland Street District. This event is free and for all ages.
Number two – Hocus Pocus viewing at the Temple Theatre
We all love a good Halloween movie, and what’s better than seeing it at your local historical theater? On Sunday, October 29th starting at 2pm for only $10, you could go watch a screening of Hocus Pocus with some friends– and don’t forget the snacks, either! The Temple is one of the historic theaters around here that also is a great view outside of the movie, too.
Number one – Rocky Horror Picture Show – Halloween Spooktacular!
Hosted by the Historic Masonic Temple of Bay City, watch a shadowcast of Rocky Horror
Picture show with your friends. On Saturday, October 28th starting at 8pm at 700 N. Madison Ave., in Bay City, you can receive a seat as well as a prop tote bag, a Rocky Horror light, a souvenir button, and access to their Halloween costume contest for $30! Though the price may be steep for some, the proceeds go to keeping events at the temple alive, and helps fund the restoration of the two-hundred year old building the event is hosted in!
Though these are only a few of the things that are going on this weekend, there’s still a
lot of great opportunities around to better get involved with the tri-city communities and what they have to offer.
