Saturday, October 26 is a great day to get the kids dressed up in Halloween costumes and bring them to Downtown Ferndale. With three festive events there is sure to be enough to wear the little ghosts and goblins out.
The evening’s festivities begin with a Hoe Down celebration in honor of the W. 9 Mile construction project, creatively titled How the West Was One. City officials will wield the giant scissors to cut the ceremonial ribbon, and the area will be open for tours. Food trucks will be there as well. Grown-ups and kids are encouraged to attend. The ribbon cutting and tours start at 4pm, and will continue until 7pm.
Trick or Treating in Downtown Ferndale also goes from 4pm to 7pm. Participating stores will have candy or treats for youngsters in costume.
Then the fun moves on to the Ferndale Public Library for their annual Spooktacular event. This year’s theme is The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The event goes from 7pm-8pm and is the perfect way to end a night of youthful Halloween-themed fun.
