Romeo Michigan may be the “Trick or Treat” capital of Metro Detroit.  The world.  The known universe.

I’ve never seen anything like it. >> Photo Gallery

Every year on Halloween on Tillson Street, they get more than two THOUSAND trick or treaters.  MORE THAN 2,000! 

Why?  Because the people who live on Tillson go NUTS this time of year.  The entire street is decorated.    For several blocks.  There are pirate ships with canons that really “go boom.”  There are monsters everywhere.  At one house there is a magnificent “Monsters Ball,” with 20 fabulous skeletons dressed in fancy gowns and tuxes.  There are huge pillars.  Curtains.  Even a chandelier.   In the front YARD.  The Monster’s Ball is the brainchild of Michelle Sedgewick. She’s been doing this for 20 years now.  She says it’s the most fun she has all year.

It isn’t even Halloween yet, and people are driving up and down the street all day, taking pictures of the homes.  And at night…it’s even more magical.

So why not get in the car, load up the kids and take a cool Halloween tour of Tillson Street,  where things do go bump in the night.  And people love it.

Tillson is located in downtown Romeo, just west of Main Street.  It’s between 31 and 32 Mile Roads.  Look for the Dairy Queen on the corner.  Then follow the crowd!
