(Oakland County Blog, Oct. 11, 2017)
With so many fantastic Halloween events and activities in Oakland County, it can be difficult to keep track. That’s why Oakland County’s award-winning GIS team has developed a custom map to bring you all of Halloween’s fun and fright in one easy-to-use package.
Looking for an event near you? Simply look to your section of Oakland County for skeleton and pumpkin icons. Each icon represents a Halloween event or attraction. Skeletons represent scarier events, while pumpkins represent more family-friendly outings. When clicked, the icons reveal the event’s information, including its name, address, and website.
If haunted attractions like The Artists’ Asylum are too spooky for your taste, the Halloween Happenings map also offers filters for “Frights” and “Fun.” Users may further refine Halloween searches based on event features, like Cider Mills or Orchards, Hay Rides, and Trick-or-Treating spots.
