How-To Halloween is a family-friendly festival that celebrates creativity, imagination and the innovative spirit by showcasing an exhibit hall packed with theatrical displays, interactive games, unique vendors and amazing entertainment! We ‘Frankenstein’ together the best parts of a Maker Faire, Comic Con, Craft Show, Science Museum, Music Festival and Halloween Carnival to create monstrous fun for everyone. Our mission is to inspire kids and the ‘kids at heart’ to make something spooktacular for the holiday and get excited about the creative process as they explore the many hands-on activities, how-to sessions and immersive experiences.

These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. They are a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. It’s a director’s commentary of my Fall season adventures during the year of 2019 in the Michigan Geek Scene.

The 9th Annual Downtown Lansing Zombie Walk invades the Capital City once again on Saturday October 13, 2018, and all ages of the undead are welcome to walk for FREE! We ask participants to bring a nonperishable food donation in support of the Greater Lansing Food Bank, and to assemble at 11:30am inside the Lansing Center by Exhibit Hall C.
Once the donations are collected, the horde members will be given a wristband before being unleashed on the unsuspecting citizens of Lansing, Michigan at high noon. Traffic comes to a stand still as we shuffle our way to the steps of the Capitol for the greatest photo op ever seen. Afterwards, we invite the walking dead to return to the Lansing Center for discounted entry into How-To Halloween to compete for big prizes in our Best Zombie Contest on the main stage and join in all the spooktacular fun at the festival.
