About Haunted Hayride

Marquette’s Haunted Hayride is a tractor drawn hayride which weaves through the Marquette County “Scare”grounds. The ride is filled with terror and surprise, fun and laughter.  As you travel through the cold darkness, be warned that the unexpected may be lurking at every turn and behind each and every tree there may be an eerie encounter to greet you!

Who are we when we aren't scaring you silly?

During the rest of the year, we are a 501c3 dedicated to creating fun and giving back to our community.  Our volunteers are from a variety of community groups who give their time and talents to ensure that the Hay Ride is the best experience ever.  Their reward?  100% of proceeds are given back to these same organizations.  Every contributing organization will receive an equal share of the proceeds at the conclusion of the event.

Marquette’s Haunted Hayride Directors

Andi Goriesky–President

James Goriesky–Treasurer

Jesie Melchiori–Vice President
