“You’ve got to go to Tillson Street for Halloween!” “Have you been down Tillson Street yet?” “You’re going to love Tillson Street!”
OK. OK. Got it. I should probably go to Tillson Street. I did my due diligence and Googled Tillson Street in Romeo, MI. Interesting backstory.
Every October, 2 1/2 blocks of Tillson Street are transformed, with elaborate Halloween decorations on nearly every one of the historic Victorian homes, which date to the Civil War era. Vicki Lee, whose birthday is on Halloween and has lived on Tillson for 36 years, gladly accepts the blame for starting this annual event. She estimates that 80,000 visitors come to Tillson Street each year in the weeks leading up to Halloween. Spectators from as far away as Germany and Japan have found their way to Romeo to see the haunted neighborhood street.
50 degrees out, sunny sky, trees are turning, and Victorian homes. I’m there! Romeo is a quick 10 minute drive north from my home so this was a no brainer.
I parked and walked a block over to Tillson, shuffling through the leaves deep along the curbs. A perfect fall day and the decorations were fantastic. This is serious stuff for the Tillson neighborhood. Most homes had themes in their front yards which made my adventure even more enjoyable.
Enjoy the pictures! I’ve captioned a few of them but I think that you get the idea. You may want to zoom in on some of them to see the wonderful detail.
I’ll “leaf” you with these beautiful leaves. Enjoying them while I can – winter is coming soon. Have a Happy Halloween everyone – don’t eat too much candy!
