A Scary Good Time In Romeo

Tillson Street in Romeo has been serving up the scary for around 20 years now.  In fact, in the last few years the haunted street has become so popular that the average house gets 2000 plus trick-or-treaters!

If you live in the area, this is a must see Halloween attraction.  To check out pictures from years past and see the report Fox 2 Detroit did on October 27th of the scary street, click here.

T-shirts are available for purchase and all proceeds go to academic and athletic scholarships for Romeo High School students.

Tillson Street residents are AMAZING Michiganders!!!
