This event has been canceled due to COVID-19. Events take advance planning and while current guidelines might have allowed the event, it was uncertain at the time a decision was made.Michigan is easing restrictions especially as many people become vaccinated against COVID. We know families have different comfort levels with various activities. Please use your own judgement on whether the event is right for your family. Check mask guidelines for the event itself. While no longer legally required, masks are still recommended for those not fully vaccinated if you are indoors or outdoors when distancing is not possible. We encourage people to continue wearing masks (and do ourselves even though we are fully vaccinated).

NOTE THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURRED
Main Street Area
Main Street and Liberty, Ann Arbor
Update: The Main Street Treat Parade is cancelled for 2020. While we love the Treat Parade and are sad to see it cancelled, we know it was always very busy and not conducive to social distancing. Hopefully it will return for Halloween 2021.
Past years information
The Main Street Area Association will hold their 18th annual Halloween Treat Parade on Halloween from 11a-3p. Stop by participating businesses to trick or treat (the list of businesses will be added to the Main Street Area Association’s website). Before the Halloween Treat Parade starts, the Downtown Branch of Ann Arbor District Library typically holds a Halloween Party.
The Halloween Treat Parade was my favorite Ann Arbor Halloween activity when my daughter was younger. We trick or treated each year from the time she was 10 months old through Kindergarten (She was the last year of half-day Kindergarten). I loved trick or treating on Main Street with my daughter until she was in full-day school. It is so much fun to see all of the toddlers and preschoolers walking up and down the street in their costumes. Each year there were always several memorable costumes. We always started the day with the Library’s Halloween Party. When we attended the Treat Parade, we would always have lunch downtown (most frequently at Conor O’Neills). I appreciated that several businesses also gave treats to the parents in the form of coupons. The Treat Parade is a great way to explore some of the newer businesses and restaurants in the Main Street Area. The Halloween Treat Parade is held rain or shine, warm or cold. It was misting for the 2009 Halloween Treat Parade. We were prepared with umbrellas and rain coats. There have been years where we didn’t need jackets and years where we bundled up (under my daughter’s costume). Thank you to all of the businesses who support the Halloween Treat Parade. It is definitely a valued part of Halloween in Ann Arbor.
