Treats in the Streets

October 30 2016 | 10:00am to 4:00pm

One of the spookiest days of the year is back! From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., children aged 12 and younger can trick-or-treat in the Streets of Old Detroit, enjoy free refreshments and make a Halloween craft to take home. Throughout the afternoon, visitors of all ages will be astounded by the magic of The Amazing Clark and laugh along with Richard Paul’s “Ha Ha Halloween Show!” Families can test their sleuthing skills with our ghoulish history hunt for their chance to win a fun prize! We encourage everyone to come in costume. Admission to the museum and the event is free, although parking fees will apply. 

Please note that parking at the museum is limited. There is two hour street parking along Kirby Street and Cass Avenues. Please visit the Midtown Detroit website for additional parking information: http://midtowndetroitinc.org/visit/parking
