19th annual Treat Parade returns to downtown Ann Arbor on Oct. 31

Creatures of all sizes welcome to trick-or-treat on Main St.


ANN ARBOR – The downtown Treat Parade will be back for its 19th run on Oct. 31 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Goblins, ghouls and critters of all ages will fill the downtown area for trick-or-treating at participating downtown businesses. More than 50 retail shops, restaurants, banks and offices will be handing out treats to the hundreds of trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Look out for the black and orange balloons identifying participating businesses. Those providing non-food treats will be marked with a teal pumpkin in their window.

"The treat parade brings joy to the neighborhood," Sandra Andrade, executive director of the Main Street Area Association, said in a statement. "The business community enjoys this event almost as much as the children. I highly recommend making your way downtown between 11am and 3pm on Halloween whether or not you have kids in tow, it's totally worth the trip!"
