A tradition of Halloween fun continues at the Halloween Hoot, Oct. 14-16, 2016, a beloved Oakland County Halloween event your family won’t want to miss!

Beginning on Friday, take a few minutes to sit by the campfire with entertainment. Guests walk through a luminaire-lit trail in the woods. Stop at stations to watch short, entertaining skits written and performed by local students, the Dinosaur Hill Drama Club and other groups.


Every 10 minutes, a volunteer guides a group to walk through the trail. The interactive skits are age-appropriate and comical (best for ages 2-12 or so, according to staff). You may learn something new with storytelling.

Bring a bag. You will need it for gathering all of the good snacks from trick-or-treating. Grab a cup of cider and a doughnut to complete the night. (And be sure to wear your costumes, since dressing up is part of the fun!) A craft and Halloween-themed games are also offered.

Admission is $7 per person. Tickets sell based on particular time slots – and they sell fast. You must register for this event in advance. Times are as follows:

  • Friday, Oct. 14: 6-8:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 15: 4-8 p.m.
  • Sunday, Oct. 16: 3:30-6:30 p.m.
