Sample Plaque

Sample Plaque

If you live in Ferndale, your house was probably either built in the 40’s or the 20’s. It is probably a bungalow, and it is probably a little different than every other 40’s and 20’s bungalow in the city. You probably look at your house and say “Wow, this house is a piece of history. It is so unique and better crafted than the cookie cutter junk they make nowadays, if only I had some kind of plaque to declare how historically awesome it is.”

Well, wait no more. The Ferndale Historical Society sells these “Historical House Designation Plaques”, along with all sorts of other historical goodies. Drop by the museum and order one, or visit their Web site and print out the order form online.

Wolfman Mac

Wolfman Mac & Boney Bob

On Saturday, October 24 from 3pm to 7pm, Detroit local horror movie host Wolfman Mac will be leading a mob of brain-hungry zombies through the city of Ferndale. Alright, they may not be hungry for brains, but there will be a buffet.

You can be one of these zombies, just register on the day of at 3pm in the walkway next to American Pop at 175 9 Mile Road. The event is a fundraiser for the Ferndale Food Bank, and participants are encouraged to bring canned goods to donate. Local businesses will be getting in on the fun with lots of goodies and treats, plus there’s a costume contest with a walk-on role on Wolfman Mac’s Chiller Drive-In as the Grand Prize!

Wolfman Mac’s Chiller Drive-In can be seen Saturdays at midnight on Detroit’s MyTV 20.
