Happy Halloween weekend! I’m sure most of you ghost and goblins have plans for the weekend. We still want to bring you some cool ideas, just in case you haven’t cemented your plans just yet.
Are you looking for some ideas for trick or treating? We’ve wrote a list earlier this month with 10 different places to take your kids.
Rocky Horror Picture Show – Detroit
Fox might have made the remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show, but now is your chance to watch the original on the big screen. Cinema Detroit is showing Rocky Horror twice a night on October 28, 29, and 31. (There is no show on October 30.)
Have you always wanted to dress up like Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Columbia, or Eddie? Now is your chance because they will be having a costume contest for the most detailed costumes from Rocky Horror. (You can find the list of all the costumes here.)
Buy your tickets in advance, because they will sell out.
Show times for all three nights are 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM
Cinema Detroit is located at 4126 3rd St, Detroit, Michigan 48201
Belle Isle Harvest Festival – Detroit
If you haven’t made it out to any of the other harvest festivals this season, get over to Belle Isle this Saturday, October 29.
This year the Belle Isle Harvest Festival will be held by the White House (across the street from the Belle Isle Aquarium and Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservancy).
There are a lot of great things planned for the day. Hang out by the bonfire and roast marshmallows. Take a stroll through the mobile DIA Museum that will be there. Has it been a while since you’ve met Smokey the Bear? Now is your chance.
Costumes are welcomed and encouraged.
The event is free, but if you do not have the Recreation Passport you will need to purchase one for $11 when you get on Belle Isle.

Fall Lantern Tour- Ypsilanti
I know Ypsi is in Washtenaw County, but some people argue that Washtenaw is part of metro Detroit so I’m going to go with it. This event is too cool not to share.

Dress for the weather, it goes without saying that the warm nights are gone. Don’t forget to wear sensible shoes.
