The City of Southfield Parks & Recreation Department together with the Southfield Public Library, Southfield Police Department, Southfield Fire Department and SafeSplash Swim School will present Book & Boo on Sunday, October 31 at Bedford Woods Park located on Lathrup Drive north of Twelve Mile Road (just east of Southfield Road).

Children ages 2-10 and their families are invited to meet characters from a popular Halloween story while safely trick-or-treating along a decorated trail. At the end of the path, the first 200 children will also receive a pumpkin to take home. Participants are encouraged to come in costume; however, this is an all outdoor event so please dress accordingly. There are four, 30-minute time slots available for families to choose from (1-1:30 p.m.; 1:45-2:15 p.m.; 2:30-3 p.m.; 3:15-3:45 p.m.) on a first-come, first-served basis. Each time slot will be limited to 100 total participants (children and adults).
