Great Lakes FrightFest: More Than a Camping Retreat for Haunters

Great Lakes Frightfest

Great Lakes FrightfestCamping. Haunted House. Haunt Gathering. Make and Takes. A weekend full of scary fun! These are just a few things you might discover on your weekend at the Great Lakes FrightFest in Petersburg, Michigan on May 30-June 1st.

Great Lakes FrightFest is an annual haunters get-together for home and pro haunters alike. Located at a campground in South East Michigan for the last 14 years. Events include activities such as show and tells, demos, make and takes, a pot luck dinner, raffle and door prizes, and events for the kids.

We interview Kkrazy Kkaren Taylor from the Great Lakes Frightfest and find out that this event isn’t any normal Camp-Out. For example, this Haunt Gathering is not open to the public. Just you and other Halloween and Haunted Attraction junkies just like you! It is also a family friendly function which means you can bring the kids with you. There are children activities too! Also, most profits go into helping many charities Karen has set up. Your money is going into supporting great causes and helping others that are not as fortunate. For a complete list of charities make sure to check out their website.

Here are a few of the charities that the Great Lakes FrightFest help every year: Gleaners Food Bank, Monroe Humane Society, Kotumes 4 Kids, Kostumes 4 Kritters, and this years special charity, St. Jude’s Children’s Cancer research.
