Downtown Traverse City Halloween Walk

Halloween is always looked forward to the most by children and Traverse City has plenty of fun for them here. Downtown Traverse City hosts the Downtown Traverse City Halloween Walk each year to make sure young children have the opportunity to show off their spirited costumes. This year’s festivities will take place on Saturday, October 29th from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM. Participating businesses will be handing out candy to the little goblins and ghosts as they walk by in their best costume. The Downtown Traverse City Halloween is the perfect opportunity for visitors to get in some trick or treating in case they do not stick around on Monday when Halloween takes place officially that evening.

14th Annual Traverse City Zombie 5K Run

Another local tradition we have here in Traverse City is our annual Traverse City Zombie 5K Run. This exciting event is put on by local zombie heroes of Right Brain Brewery who offer up costume prizes, a medal ceremony, live music, post-race refreshments including craft beer, and plenty of zombies socializing. Contestants of the Annual Traverse City Zombie 5K Run are encouraged to put on their best zombie getup so you can run, or crawl, your way through this 5K race. The event starts at Right Brain Brewery allowing you to easily stop by after the race to enjoy some grub or a beer or two. All funds will be used to benefit T.A.R.T Trails here in Traverse City. Don’t miss this ghoulish time!
