Bullfrogs and butterflies, ghosts and goblins, superheroes and their sidekicks will fill downtown Ann Arbor streets for the 15th annual Treat Parade. Ann Arbor’s Main Street Area Association is delighted to present this favorite downtown tradition with the help of over 70 participating businesses. Restaurants, retail shops, banks and offices will all be ready to hand out sweet treats and maybe a few tricks to the hundreds of costumed characters and their grown-ups on Halloween. The Ann Arbor District Library on S. Fifth Ave. will throw a Halloween Party complete with stories, puppets and tricks-or-treats for the preschool set from 10:30 to 11am in the first floor lobby.
