Blake’s Halloween - Armada, MI
Blake’s has operated the farm, greenhouses, and cider mill for over 20 years. This is one of the largest cider mills and activity centers in Michigan. I used to live near Detroit and this became one of our family’s favorites in the fall. Blake’s Halloween runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. They have a live DJ, food tent, and free cider and donuts. Also enjoy outdoor movies and bonfires under the stars every night. The haunted attractions are Spookyland 3D Maze, Zombie Paintball Safari, 3-Story Haunted Barn, and the Nighttime Spooky Hayride. Tickets have several pricing combinations based on how many attractions you want to go through. Add attractions for more or children and Sunday for less. I highly recommend Blake’s for lots of fun.
