MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The City of Marquette and the Downtown Development Authority will host a Halloween Spectacle featuring large-scale community outdoor performance of giant puppetry, percussion and theatrical dance this weekend.
Tiina Harris with the City of Marquette’s Arts & Culture Committee visited the Sunny 101.9 studios to discuss the activities taking place this Saturday evening at the Downtown Commons.
Harris explained that several individuals and groups have come together to produce the spectacle. Ravens on skates, zombie folk dancers, stilt walking spirits, a life-size dragon and skeleton marching band are just a few of the enchanted.
As the evening grows dark, the community is invited to join in processions throughout the City converging in the Marquette Commons to witness Marquette’s first Halloween Spectacle.
Harris says this spectacle of pageantry is encouraging community collaboration and creation of a new community tradition.
