Registration for the 2017 Hallow-Palooza to begin Oct. 1

TAYLOR — Registration for the second annual Hallow-Palooka, the city’s marquee family Halloween event, begins Oct. 1.

The event is scheduled for 5 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 27, followed by a family movie — “Monsters Inc.” — in the Sheridan Center Open Air Pavilion at Heritage Park, 12111 Pardee Road.

Hallow-Palooza is free for residents (valid identification is required) and $5 per non-resident child. All minors must be accompanied by an authorized adult or parent throughout the event.

Registration is available online and in person at the Heritage Park Petting Farm, 12803 Pardee. The Petting Farm is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. Payment is cash only if registration is done in person.

Hallow-Palooza was created last year, with thousands of people attending. The trick-or-treat event follows a path that winds its way through “spooky locations” in Heritage Park, the petting farm, Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and other stops.

Forty locations offer trick-or-treat candies, and the conservatory sponsors a wonderful “scary car show” in its gardens’ area. Participants must provide their own trick-or-treat bags.

Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase, and a Scarecrow Contest will beheld on location, with attendees voting.

There will be bounce houses, music and more.

Hallow-Palooza is sponsored the city of Taylor, Keck Real Estate, Wayne County Community College District, McKinley, Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and the Rotary Club of Taylor.
