Halloween Trick-or-Treating & Halloween Parties

October 2019

Halloween and Trick-or-Treating

The skies are heavy with ominous clouds...biting cold air envelops our bodies...and the trees are ablaze with color. It's late October-time for pumpkins, ghouls, and witches to come out and scare innocent souls, in search for a treat.

Of course, we're talking about Halloween, that most frightening time of year. West Michigan is not only beautiful in October, but there are plenty of annual events to satisfy the timid...and those that dare to be scared!
