Kalamazoo Downtown Partnership is hosting their first ever Downtown Kalamazoo SkeleTour, October 5th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. Life-sized skeletons dressed to reflect Kalamazoo businesses and organizations will take over downtown streets. Whether silly or spooky, you'll bone up on your knowledge of our fair city. This is an event for the whole family. Children's activities will be part of the kick-off on Bates Alley, including professional pumpkin carving demonstrations between 4:00pm and 6:00pm and live music from The Skeletones from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. Those 21 and over can join the Skeleton Bar Crawl starting at 4:00, too! To add more ambiance, it's the first time this year the Trolley of Terror will be creeping through with several stops at SkeleTour businesses. Start Halloween right and bring the family and friends to the first-ever Kalamazoo SkeleTour.
