LAKE ORION, Mich. (WWJ) -- It’s officially “Spooky Season,” and there’s an opportunity for metro Detroiters to be part of a creepy world record on Thursday.

The folks at Fright Village, one of the newest attractions at the popular Canterbury Village in Lake Orion, will be attempting to break the world record for largest gathering of Michael Myers costumes at one time.

Michael Myers, of course, is the mask-wearing, knife-wielding villain of the “Halloween” movie series.

Canterbury Village Owner Keith Aldridge tells WWJ they’re confident they’ll be able to break the record.

“I think we need over 250 people, so we feel pretty confident that we can set this record and we’ll be disappointed if we don’t,” Aldridge said.

Participants must arrive by 6 p.m. on Thursday, while organizers are stressing that only prop knives will be allowed.

The event is being held in partnership with Motor City Comic Con, which is taking place this weekend at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.

There will be a special appearance by James Jude Courtney, who plays Myers in the series’ new installment, “Halloween Kills.” He’ll also be on-hand at Motor City Comic Con.

Other events scheduled for Thursday night at Fright Village include a disco club and bonfire pits, which Aldridge says will make it like a date night.

All participants will be entered to win a grand prize, which includes free passes to this weekend’s Comic Con, and a chance to get a picture with Courtney.
