The Best Halloween Displays in Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor

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 and Ann Arbor go all out with the Halloween décor and create some of the battiest displays in the process.

Here, 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.

Check it out to start planning your family’s Halloween adventures — and if you know of a display that we missed, fill out our survey so that we can spread the fun to others!

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 why you visit these spook-tacular displays, download our free Halloween Scavenger hunt list!

Callous Manor

The owners of this home spend hours making their gothic cemetery look just right. Swing by to walk the “grounds” and get spooked by the more than 20 animatronics, too.

Colman Street Cemetery

This display features a ghoulish graveyard, a creepy corn maze and a scene out of an alien invasion.

Grindley Park Haunt

The Grindley Park Haunt has been voted the No. 1 haunt in West Dearborn for the last four years! Swing by for menacing dollies, killer clowns and much more. Don’t forget to check out the nearby home of Ray Stachurski, who has been setting up another spooktakular display for the last nine years.

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).

Mark Van Sile’s Home

For 24 years, Mark Van Sile and his wife have gone all out with thousands of LED lights, creepy displays and more.

Mayhem On Moross

This event features four haunts on one street. See Spider’s Hallow at 57 Moross, Psychedelic Cemetery at 51 Moross, Hessmann Manor at 43 Moross and Karen’s Clown Carnival at 56 Morros.

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

Pleasant Ridge Recreation hosts an annual house decorating contest every Halloween, which means prime display spotting for local families. Drive by and take a look at what local residents have dished out. The official judging happens Oct. 12 with awards going to the creepiest skeleton, best decorated pumpkin, scariest display and judges’ favorite.

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!

Skeletons Are Alive!

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 (with social distancing required in 2020).

Till Death Do Us Part

The Grim Reaper makes an appearance at this ghostly affair, which is completely outdoor only this year.

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. Due to COVID-19, the homeowners have cancelled the walk-thru but have designed a 100% brand new yard display for families to drive by. Check it out 7-10 p.m.
