Halloween event spotlight: Monday's downtown Treat Parade

By Staff

With the holiday itself less than a week away, Halloween events are proliferating in the Ann Arbor area. Each day we're highlighting a particular favorite.

For the past 10 years, downtown Ann Arbor merchants have offered goodies for young trick-or-treaters around Halloween.

This year's event is slated for 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday throughout the Main Street area. The event is sponsored by the Main Street Area Association.

Participating businesses will fly black and orange balloons outside their establishments so it's easy to see where the goodies are.

In conjunction with the event, the Ann Arbor District Library is hosting two Halloween parties at its downtown location.

And also, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday, photographers will be taking photos of kids in costume in our Community Space, on the first floor at 301 E. Liberty (at the corner of Fifth Avenue). We'll be offering candy as well, and the photos will become part of an online photo gallery on Tuesday. Full details are here.

Find our complete guide to Halloween happenings, including trick-or-treat hours, here.

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's first top ten hit was 1976's "Night Moves." Recorded in Toronto with producer Jack Richardson, the track was a last-minute addition to an otherwise forgettable session.
