The Best Halloween Displays in Metro Detroit

Treat your kids to a spook-tacular night of frights at some of the best Halloween displays by community members, neighborhoods and local organizations.

Spooky season is officially here! And what better way to celebrate than with a tour of your community’s best Halloween displays? Each year, families and local destinations in metro Detroit go all out with the Halloween décor and create some of the battiest displays in the process. 

We’ve compiled the displays that feature the wackiest witches, the creepiest crawlers and the kookiest spooky masterpieces in our area so that you have an easy route through all of the can’t-miss displays. 

Note: Some attractions may be too scary for younger kids (it is Halloween, after all), use your discretion when planning your trip. And if you’re looking for something to do while you visit these spooktacular displays, download our free Halloween Scavenger Hunt list!

  • Address: Grindley Park neighborhood, Dearborn 

Swing by for menacing dollies, killer clowns and much more. It’s open every night until 11:30 p.m. (weather permitting).  

Haunted Garage Productions

This local haunted garage gets voted one of the top haunted attractions every year. It was started by a retired gym teacher from Grosse Pointe Farms who wanted to show his eclectic Halloween collection off to the community. Since it began, he has donated his earnings to many PTOs in Grosse Pointe communities, St. Clair Shores and more. Great for all ages.

Check out this scary display, which features witches, skeletons and more.

Saline Scarecrow Contest

Take a walk in downtown Saline in October to see tons of scarecrows decorated by local families and groups. It’s the perfect display for families with little ones! 

Skeletons Are Alive! 

  • Address: Downtown Northville area 

More than 120 skeletons dressed as baseball players, clowns, farmers, cheerleaders and more dot the downtown area. Take a walk to see how many different displays you can find and try some of the local restaurants while you’re there. 

Terror on Tillson

The homeowners on Tillson Street in Romeo all have one thing in common: a love of Halloween. Each year, the neighborhood puts up more than 30 elaborate displays that they’ve become famous for. You can walk up and down Tillson to see the display during the entire month of October — some houses even offer special activities and interactive exhibits.

Twisted Fears Haunted House 

The Clinton Township family at this private residence typically transforms the home into a haunted walk-thru, which is great for scare-seekers along with those just passing by.
