(WXYZ) — Beginning Sept. 12, Cedar Point will hold a Tricks and Treats Fall Fest, an outdoor street festival, every Saturday and Sunday.

The festival will feature Halloween decor, live entertainment, fall food and drink tasting around the park, and rides and roller coasters.

“Halloween is a special time at Cedar Point, and our guests really look forward to it,” said Jason McClure, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point, in a press release. “While we all have to do things a little differently this year, Tricks and Treats Fall Fest is filled with fun activities for everyone, spectacular food, a variety of outdoor entertainment and a few tricks and treats. Our mission to make people happy continues into the fall season, and we’re committed to entertaining our fans, friends and families safely.”

There will be 24 new fall items available at dining locations throughout the park; guests can buy a tasting card and enjoy up to six "tricks" and "treats."

Brews and Booze Bars will be serving up specialty drinks and a variety of craft beers will also be on hand.

Kids can pick up treats and specially designed, socially distanced trick-or-treat candy stations. Additionally, there will be mask and bracelet making, coloring stations and pumpkin decorating; there will also be a hay maze, harvest tractors, corn maze and a tricks and treats challenge course.

Additionally, there will be a Tricks and Treats costume contest, with awards ranging from babies to adults; it will take place several times each day.

Tricks and Treats Fall Fest runs every Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 8 p.m., Sept. 12 through Nov. 1. For complete event information, including a full listing of live shows, attractions, activities, food and ride availability, or to purchase special ticket and overnight packages, visit
