Madison Heights Blanche Villas Subdivision

Rumor has it that residents of the Madison Heights Neighborhood have been hard at work prepping for the Halloween season (and a potential decorating contest, too).

McCombs Cemetery

Berkley resident Amanda has created a cemetery filled with spooky skeletons, zombie monsters and smoke. Check it out through Halloween.

Pleasant Ridge House Decorating Contest

Saline Scarecrow Contest

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

More than 120 skeletons dressed as baseball players, clowns, farmers, dinosaurs 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 St. 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 Yard Display

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.
