Safety Street


October 27, 2017

4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Fountain Lounge, Student Center, McNichols Campus

Pounds of Snickers, Milky Way, Hershey and Twix bars will be handed out to brave little goblins and ghouls visiting University of Detroit Mercy for the 28th annual Safety Street.

The fun and safe trick-or-treating environment will be held on Friday, Oct. 27 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Student Center Fountain Area, weather permitting, or in the Fountain Lounge.

Area school children are invited to the free event, but it is open to the public as well. Fraternities, sororities and student organizations participate in the fun evening. The School of Dentistry participates by giving out free toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss. The School of Architecture was the first to establish Safety Street for neighborhood children, but the event soon evolved to include the entire Detroit Mercy community.

Over 400 neighborhood children from grades K-5th will attend Safety Street this year, dressed in their favorite costumes. Detroit Mercy students in Halloween attire will distribute candy to the children and also offer free face painting during the event.
