When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.

Halloween weekend is here and at Absolute Michigan, we’ve always enjoyed bringing you all the fun and chills of the holiday. Here’s some links to help you get into the spirit of the season.

Michigan has its share of ghost stories. In addition to a bunch of ghost-hunter groups, “Ghost” on Absolute Michigan brings up a graveyard full of spooky stories including the rowdy ghosts of the Fenton Hotel and the Ghost of Minnie Quay. The Great Lakes State even has its own cryptid, the Dogman. For more on the Dogman and many more scary stories, turn to Linda Godfrey’s Weird Michigan, a compendium of strange tales from all across Michigan.

If it’s haunted houses or corn mazes you seek, Madman Mike has a list of Haunted Houses, Mazes & Hayrides. If you go to you’ll find a legion of links to haunted attraction websites and the remains of our massive 2010 Michigan Haunted Attractions, Corn Mazes & Halloween Guide. Don’t miss our Pumkinpalooza either!

Our Michigan Event Calendar has a number of fun things to do across the state including the Coopersville Pumpkin Train. Find many more at mLive’s Halloween page.

Check Jackson’s photo out big as the Great Pumpkin and in his slideshow.

Speaking of slideshows, there’s many more Halloween photos in the Absolute Michigan photo group slideshow and also at Halloween on Michigan in Pictures – Happy Halloween!
