ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Starting at the Gallup Canoe Livery, ghastly ghouls, families of witches and wizards and furiously fuzzy creatures are invited to paddle along the Huron River.

On Oct. 13, the annual Trick or Treat on the River will return to the Huron River for an afternoon of canoe or kayak-based trick or treating. 

Between noon and 5 p.m., trick-or-treaters of all ages can rent a canoe or kayak for $20 and casually drift along the river for chance encounters with candy-dispensing critters. However, wicked pirates and candy swiping characters will also be lurking about.

Ann Arborites waiting for their boo-worthy broods at the livery will have the opportunity to play lawn games and snack on s'mores throughout the afternoon.
