Community-wide Halloween events - Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti & Saline

There are plenty of fun, safe, and FREE family Halloween celebrations in communities throughout Washtenaw County, specifically in communities surrounding Ann Arbor. Highlighted are three local Halloween celebrations in downtown Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Saline.

Friday, October 30th:

Downtown Ann Arbor Treat Parade - 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Sponsored by the Main Street Area Association, the Ann Arbor Treat Parade allows costumed children and their parents to stroll downtown Ann Arbor and pick up treats from businesses that display holiday balloons. The event takes place in businesses along Main, Liberty, Fourth, and Washington street areas. For more information call 734-668-7112.

Ypsilanti Halloween Festival - 5:00-7:00 p.m.
Children from around the Ann Arbor region are invited to enjoy games, prizes, contests and of course, free candy at the annual Ypsilanti Halloween Festival. This year, families have an opportunity to give as well, by bringing canned goods to the downtown Ypsilanti District Library to donate to SOS. The event takes place in the Ypsilanti District Library Park at North and South Washington Streets in downtown Ypsilanti - Michigan Avenue will not be closed this year, instead the Ypsilanti Volunteer Service Corps will be on hand to help supervised children cross Michigan Avenue. For more information, visit the Downtown Association of Ypsilanti website.
While you’re enjoying the Downtown Ypsilanti Halloween Festival, stop into the YDL downtown library and listen to a slightly scary storytime at 4:30 p.m.!

Saturday, October 31st:

City of Saline Halloween Boo Bash - 1:00-3:00 p.m.
The streets of Downtown Saline will be crowded with witches, power rangers, princesses and fireman at the local Halloween street party, the Halloween Boo Bash in downtown Saline.
