Trick or Treat on the Village Green During Daylight Hours

Troy Historic Village will host their annual Trick-or-Treat event on Saturday, October 27 from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m. This year’s theme is “Three Ring Circus!”

Kids are encouraged to come dressed in their Halloween costumes for Troy Historic Village’s annual family-friendly Trick-or-Treat on the Village Green, held rain or shine.

This year, the Village transforms into a three-ring circus offering carnival games to play, circus acts to try, acrobat crafts to make, and glitter tattoos with Sparkles the Clown. Parents will appreciate the safe daytime alternative of trick-or-treating in an enclosed area with no streets to cross. Kids will walk from building to building collecting candy and treats and enjoy refreshments under the Big Top.

Admission price is $5 for Troy Historical Society members, and $7 for non-members. Kids 4 and under are free. No advance registration is required.

The Village will also have this year’s scarecrows on display, built by families, companies, and other organizations. There are approximately 50 scarecrows, and the money they raise helps cover Troy Historic Village’s operating expenses.

Voting for family-created scarecrows takes place on the Troy Historic Village Facebook page during the month of October, and the winner will be announced at the Trick-or-Treat event.

“We welcomed over 700 trick-or-treaters to last year’s Halloween event,” Matthew Hackett, Village youth programs director, said. “This year, we think kids will especially enjoy navigating our new three-ring obstacle course and playing carnival games to win prizes.”

Free parking and shuttle bus transport to-and-from the Village is available at Zion Church, located at 3668 Livernois. For more information, visit TroyHistoricVillage.org or call 248-524- 3570.
