Whether you’re looking for a scary adventure or some sweet treats, you’ll find plenty to do near Forest Lake, MN this Halloween! There are ghost tours and haunted houses, film festivals and harvest events. This Halloween, you can find fun for the whole family or go looking for a spooky thrill with your friends!
Be sure to start with the classics: if you haven’t already carved your jack-o-lantern, visit a local Minnesota pumpkin patch soon! Minnesota has lots of charming pumpkin patches and farms to search for the perfect carving pumpkin. You can search for a local farm near you on the Minnesota Grown Directory right here! You can also find pumpkin decorating, along with a bouncy house, campfires, face painting, hay rides, and more at the Spooktacular Fall Harvest Festival.
Twin Cities Corn Maze & Festival
Minnesota’s largest corn maze is another must-see. This year, the 20-acre corn maze is Viking themed! After you’ve made it out alive, plenty of victory snacks and games await you. Live music, delicious food, a petting zoo, hayrides, a corn pit, and a kid’s play area will make the Twin Cities Maze a full afternoon of autumn fun. It’s open on Saturdays and Sundays through October 29th, from 10 am to 6 pm.
For those of you who prefer a scarier night out, you can plan a night out that will definitely give you the heebie-jeebies. The Woods of Terror in Hugo, MN will both terrify and entertain you — but they won’t take responsibility for any spells cast upon you! The famous Haunted Basement has moved its location in Minneapolis, MN this year, and promises to be creepier than ever! Fright Farm Haunted House is also open every Friday and Saturday leading up to Halloween, and on Halloween night, too! For those who are younger or fainter of heart, they also offer a “Low-Scare” Matinee on Sunday, October 29th.
Halloween in the Twin Cities
There’s lot of fun to be had this time of year, so make the most of this October here in Minnesota! You can take the family out for pumpkins and hay rides in the afternoon, then find a haunted house to scare yourselves silly at night. Be safe, and have a Happy Halloween!
