Three Northern Emmet County parks participate in the annual Triple Fright Night festivities, free for families and visitors. The events are scheduled around the Annual Headlands Challenge event, when Emmet County dares visitors to walk the 1-mile dimly-lighted path from the Headlands entrance to the Dark Sky Viewing Area at the Lake Michigan shoreline.  There is free trolley service to shuttle guests between Heritage Village and McGulpin Point.  

Heritage Village transforms every year at the end of October to create Fright Night!   Join us the last Saturday of October in the evening hours between 6pm and 8 pm where costumed docents greet trick-or-treaters who will walk the ‘frightfully’ decorated grounds from building to building in this historic park.   There are bewitching graveyards and candle lit paths leading trick or treaters to decorated buildings.  Trick or treaters will enjoy give aways, refreshments at the bon fire and a scary story or two.   Heritage Village represents the era from 1880-1917.


Admission is always free and we welcome your support through donations.
