Haunted Petoskey Tours-

Petoskey resident and business owner Chris Struble is an expert on Petoskey history and its haunted past. Chris, co-founder of "Petoskey Yesterday" guides the "Haunted Petoskey Ghost Walk".There are many buildings and locations in Petoskey where unexplained happenings have and do take place. Visit these places and hear about the multiple occurrences of sightings and activities and learn about initial happenings that may be responsible for them.

This walking tour lasts approximately 90 minutes. It does involve an approximately two-mile walk up and down gently sloping hills. Please wear appropriate shoes!

 Pawtographs for Pooches -

Pawtographs for Pooches was created by Tim Maile as a way to give back to animal shelters. Over the weekend Tim Maile will be signing 8x10s of him and his beloved Murray to sell for $10.

All proceeds will go to a local rescue group, Northern Michigan Animal Rescue Network (NMARN) in Topinabee .
