October is here.  It's time for the thrills and chills of the Halloween season.  Here are several things to do in Michigan this month.

1.  Old Town Oktoberfest turns a decade old this year, and the festival is celebrating that milestone by paying tribute to all things German.  The annual event, which offers beer, music and German food, is one of Old Town Commercial Association's primary fundraisers.

2.  Fenner's 42nd annual Apple Butter Festival is Set for Oct. 10 and 11.  Customers will have the chance to stir the apple butter, cooked the old fashioned way in a copper kettle over a fire.

3. The streets and alleys of a haunted Greenfield Village lit by more than 1,000 jack-o-lanterns during Dearborn museum complex's "Halloween" celebration.  New this year are sword swallowers, contortionists, jugglers, fire breathers and other attractions.

4.  The fifth annual Haunted Weekend on Mackinac Island will bring ghost hunting, haunted history tours, walking tours of Mission Point Resort and more spooky activities.
