Local YMCA branches offer a free, safe way to celebrate Halloween

The air has begun to chill and leaves are falling faster than you can say, “Trick-or-Treat!” at the YMCA. Many children have had their Halloween costumes picked out for months, but just as many metro Detroit parents are wondering how they can make sure their children have a fun and safe Halloween.

This Halloween season, The YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit is inviting families to join their local YMCA branch for a night of haunts, games, treats and fun. Branches throughout the area will host “Halloween at the Y,” a free community event for families and neighbors to enjoy.

“Kids love Halloween, and it gives us a chance to enhance the lives of families in Metro Detroit,” said Reid Thebault, president and chief executive officer for the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit. “We look forward to putting this event on annually and making sure local communities have a safe and fun Halloween celebration.”

Families can look forward to costume contests, DJs, Halloween crafts, games and more at “Halloween at the Y.” This is a free event for the entire community, member or non-member, so invite your neighbors and enjoy a safe and happy Halloween season together.

Times, dates and activities vary for each branch, so please contact a local YMCA branch for specific event information. A directory of YMCA branches can be found at
