All Hallows Eve in Macon Georgia

When Darkness falls across the land
will your Halloween be dull and bland?
Don’t sit around for Come What May,
for you have a friend called Gateway.

From family treks through a maze of maize,
and tasty treats guaranteed to craze.
From costume parties sure to thrill,
and grisly haunts that make blood chill.

A walk by tombs, down Riverside
where ghosts themselves tell how they died.
Then downtown, a sight that’s killer
the parade they call… The Thriller.
