Arbor Annie’s Halloween Weekend Picks October 28-31

It’s Halloween weekend! Even though Monday is a school/work day, I am going to include it in the Weekend Roundup since it is Halloween.

Halloween Weekend - October 28-31, 2016

Almost all of the events this weekend are Halloween themed. I started listing some of the top Halloween events, and there are so many that I thought I would highlight some of my favorites. I would love to attend quite a few of these events, but my daughter has a project due on Halloween and needs to finish it this weekend.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Pick

Friday

There are lots of Halloween events on Friday night. A new event for this year that sounds interesting is Huron High’s Spooktacular.

All picks for Friday include:

Saturday

Saturday features two events by our sponsors: Halloween Premiere all day at Kidopolis and Halloween Kids Night Out at Peachy Fitness.

All picks for Saturday include:

Sunday

I love the Halloween Party at the UM Museum of Natural History. I’m hopeful that my daughter will finish her project before Sunday so that we can go. Sunday also features Halloween celebrations at a couple of UM sports events. The evening caps off with the Scare for Care 5K and the annual Halloween Costume at Hill Auditorium.

Monday

If you have kids who are not yet school aged, the Main Street Treat Parade is a wonderful way to celebrate Halloween. We attended every year until my daughter was in first grade (she was the last year of half-day Kindergarten). Start your Treat Parade at the Halloween Party at the Downtown Branch Library. The Westgate Branch Library is also celebrating Halloween all day with a craft project. 
 
We will be stopping on our way home from school to take advantage of one of the Halloween Dining Deals.

Of course, the big highlight is Trick or Treating. Be sure to check our roundup of area Trick or Treat times.

All Picks for Monday Include:

Beyond Events

Beyond the calendar events, there is lots of fall fun to enjoy. Last weekend, we had a great time at Cedar Point for HalloWeekends. Check out our 7 tips for visiting Cedar Point.

We had plans to visit a Corn Maze two weeks ago, but it was closed due to the rain earlier in the day. We’re hoping to make it this weekend since most close for the season on  Sunday.
