Halloween Hours & Events in Northville, Novi, and South Lyon - 2018

Halloween is the time of year when your whole neighborhood turns out to meet each other and opens their doors for the cute kids in their bright costumes.

It is a magical time and like no other day of the year for this reason. This fun tradition gives us all the chance to step outside our doors and see our neighbors face to face, or to walk through our cities and towns, knocking on doors for no other reason than to share in the fun.

If you don't have children to take trick-or-treating, consider buying a few bags of candy and turning on your porch light this Wednesday. The great thing about kids is that they don't care whether you have a single pumpkin on your porch. If you have free candy, you are automatically their hero!

One of the best things about Halloween, from our perspective, is that it gives you, as a family, a perspective on your wonderful community that we get to see all the time! You might not know it yet, but you have wonderful, interesting and kind neighbors all around you. That is truly the thing which gives homes their value.

You may have already participated in Halloween and harvest festivities in a variety of ways through churches or schools. However, luckily, these local communities are all safe places where you can take your kids and be assured of friendly neighbors with a light on and a bucket of scrumptious candy. Don't miss the opportunity to participate in trick-or-treating on Halloween night!
