It's the most wonderful time of the year!

That...that might be confusing for those who love Christmastime. No, the wonderful time I'm talking about is spooky season!

The leaves start changing colors, the weather starts getting cooler (which I use as an excuse to drink an excessive amount warm apple cider), people start sharing all of their favorite ghost stories and I finally get to watch all of my favorite 'spooky' movies. That includes the classic, Hocus Pocus.

Now, I could watch Hocus Pocus from my couch, sure. But, why not make an event of it?

The Kalamazoo State Theatre has announced that Hocus Pocus is returning on October 16th. Those who want to attend are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character, Sweetwater's Donut Mill will be there with "specially created" donut holes for the first 300 attendees, and there will even be cute animals!

The SPCA of SW Michigan will be at the Kalamazoo State Theatre with a kindle of kittens available for adoption.
