Pumpkin Palooza, museum tour set

The 10th Annual Pumpkin Palooza is set for noon until 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24 in downtown Plymouth.

The free event, sponsored by the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, usually attracts more than 6,000 visitors including costumed children, fur babies, parents and grandparents to enjoy trick or treating at area merchants where goodies are usually plentiful.

In addition to the trick or treating, the event also features live entertainment, costume contests for children of all ages, music, dancing and other entertainment.

And, the Plymouth Historical Museum has been infiltrated by ghosts who are up to some mischief. Visitors can explore the museum from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29 with groups starting a tour of the haunted exhibits every 15 minutes. Halloween costumes are encouraged, but not required. 

After completing the tour, children will be given a bag of candy and a craft to make at home. Tickets, sold for 15-minutes intervals, are priced at $10 for those 11 and older and $5 for children ages 6 to 11. Children 5 and younger will be admitted at no cost with a regular ticket purchase. More information and tickets are available at (734) 455-8940.  The museum is located at 155 S. Main St. in downtown Plymouth.

The event is sponsored by Highway Media.
