Last year, the Zombies continued down Washington Ave. and crossed at 7th Street. The people in the 600 block of Washington really enjoyed it!! We were pleasantly surprised at how many Zombies took part. Wondered if the Zombies would consider walking a bit further past the Health Hutt, crossing in the crosswalk, so that people in The Bookman and JW's could also join in the fun.

This family of zombies would be happy to. See you then. Or shall I say uuuuuggghhhh brains!

We have read that the GH community, as well as neighboring areas have been in an uproar over a man putting empty chairs into his tree as a way of promoting his political opinions. People cant stand this, and they want something done against it. HOWEVER, in the GH community, IF this man had hung fake dead bodies all over his tree as a way of promoting his halloween opinions, it obviously would have been considered normal and acceptable... YOU JUST THINK ABOUT THAT! Grand Haven and it's citizens should be full of shame and guilt for all of this garbage. It's time for the local Christians, and those who care about the innocent children to stand up and let people know that they do not support these type of behaviors, and that these behaviors are NOT NORMAL OR ACCEPTABLE. GOD IS WATCHING YOU.

DNFTT, keep your nose in your own community. No one here needs your stinking religion or politics spewed on a list of our Halloween fun things to do.
