SkeleTour Details

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?

Stroll along Michigan Avenue, the Kalamazoo Mall, Rose Street, and Portage Street, and you’ll see skeletons on display.

Plus, there’s a special display on the N. Kalamazoo Mall near the Radisson Plaza Hotel.

Details like cornstalks on light poles truly transform downtown into a special fall destination.

Adding to the Skeletour experience: a series of events and activities geared toward a wide range of audiences.

Families, food-lovers, music fans, and more will find fun things happening in Downtown Kalamazoo in the month of October.
