Grown-Up Scares and Fun this Halloween


Halloween can sometimes be viewed as an adolescent holiday with costumes, trick ‘r treating, and candy, but who says that only kids can have fun? There are plenty of ways to enjoy Halloween; from themed parties to creepy concerts, and even spooky dinners, entertainment options are boundless. So get ready for some costumed fun and check out these upcoming Halloween events in Metro Detroit.

Theatre Bizarre (10/11, 10/12, 10/18, 10/19)

A modern day masquerade has turned into one of Detroit’s richest traditions in the form of Theatre Bizarre. The Masonic Temple plays host to this annual celebration of strange and (of course) bizarre featuring live music, performers, and an energetic atmosphere. This year’s party begins on Friday, October 11 with The Masquerade Gala, with masquerades on the following Fridays and Saturdays.

Halloween in Hollygrove (10/12)

Holly gets spooky this Saturday, October 12 as the Halloween in Hollygrove returns for more Halloween mayhem. Enjoy a double feature of horror movies under the stars, play headless horseman bubble soccer, try to survive zombie paintball, and dance the night away at club scream. Although there is no age limit set at this event, it is strongly considered an 18 and over event.

Monster’s Ball (10/25)

Featuring a party of over 1,500 Halloween enthusiasts every year, Monster’s Ball is one of the top Halloween parties in Detroit.
