Skeletons are popping up all over downtown Kalamazoo!

With the beautiful October weather, what better reason than to take a walking tour to see them up close and personal?

A little spooky, and a whole lot of silly, these skeletons are posed in hilarious ways that beg for “skelfies.”

Even better? Each skeleton reflects a local business or organization unique to Kalamazoo.

So, where can you find the skeletons?
