By: Amber Ogden | October 20, 2015

As the end of the month nears, we’re getting closer to everyone’s favorite spooky holiday… Halloween! While you’ll surely be taking your children trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, there are plenty of opportunities for Halloween family fun in Metro Detroit leading up to All Hallows Eve.

Take a look at a few trick-or-treating alternatives!

Halloween Spooktacular takes place in downtown Mount Clemens this Saturday, Oct. 24. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., kids can trick or treat at businesses and enjoy activities like arts and crafts, Halloween Putt Putt Golf and a meet and greet with Hazel the Wacky Witch.

Trick-or-Treasure in downtown Clawson is another opportunity for kids to gather treats from local businesses. This Saturday from noon to 3 p.m., children can enjoy stops along the way at the Clawson Police Station and Fire Department. All treats distributed will be allergen free!

Downtown Rochester is also providing fun and frights this Saturday! From 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., kids can trick or treat, then march in a costume parade, which makes its way to the Fire Department.

After the parade, children are free to enjoy crafts, a screening of “Hotel Transylvania” and a spaghetti dinner at the Rochester Fire Department. The dinner costs $10 for adults and $5 for children ages ten and under.

The 32nd Annual Spooktacular takes place on Monday, Oct. 26 in downtown Royal Oak, when over 50 local businesses will offer candy, treats and games to trick-or-treaters from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Several businesses will serve up deals, including face painting at Sweet Earth and s’mores pie dessert samples at Blaze Pizza.

Ann Arbor’s 15th Annual Treat Parade is set for Friday, Oct. 30 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Ann Arbor District Library will kick things off with a Halloween party, including puppets and treats, followed by the parade!
