The Alley District (Howell)

MStreet Baking Company’s original location is here along with many other cute shops and restaurants! I wish I lived closer to this cute little corner of Metro Detroit!

Columbia Street (Detroit)

This is a pedestrian only street, and it’s set up super cute for fall!

You can grab a pumpkin and paint it at JoJo’s ShakeBar too! They also have cute fall drinks and shakes for purchase. Other shops & restaurants on Columbia Street include: Union Assembly, Frida Batidos, & Sahara.

On Sundays, you can tailgate here for the Lions too!

Parker’s Alley (Detroit)

Not decorated just yet (as of 10/10 at time of posting), but it will be soon. I will be sure to let you know!

Add this one to your list though. They do a super cute event every year called Parker’s Alley Boo Bash. This year it is on Saturday, 10/28 from 1-5pm. Kids can trick or treat through the alley and select retailers on Woodward, The Z, Monroe Street, and in Capitol Park (while supplies last). There will be creepy crafts, face painting, balloon art, live artwork, and lots of candy!

Pumpkin Lane (Trenton)

Boxford Street, Trenton MI

PUMPKINS! This is a residential street in Trenton where the neighbors have come together to deck it out in pumpkins! Seriously so freaking cute (and not scary if you’re not into being scared haha). Photos are courtesy of Kendra Koman.


Northville Skeletons (Northville)

This is the 12th year of Skeletons ALIVE! The launch party was on 10/6, but the skeletons will remain up through the end of October.

The launch party includes many fun, family-friendly and FREE activities including:

  • Detroit Circus skeleton stilt walker
  • Balloon twisters
  • Face painting
  • Good to Glow
  • John Angevine, pumpkin carver
  • Ghostbusters on site to ensure the “supernatural” doesn’t crash the party!
  • Social Bones rocking in Town Square.

Guests can enjoy food and beverages from the wide variety of our downtown restaurants as well as Mystic Kettle, Slow’s to Go, and Cookies and Cream Detroit!

Downtown stands are booked with additional vendors including Sweet Brew, Parmenter’s, and Jennie’s Pierogis.

A warm Northville thank you to our premier sponsor Sugaring NYC!

If you missed it this year, be sure to put the launch party on your calendar for 2024!

Downtown Bookley (Berkley)

The businesses of Downtown Berkley are all coming together this year to decorate the streets and they ‘re calling it Downtown Bookley! It looks super cute and festive. I get the vibe that all of the business owners are having lots of fun with it, and that makes me want to go see it even more!


Downtown Romeo (+ Tillson Street of course!)
