It’s heeeeere! The spookiest month is upon us and, naturally, there is lots of stuff to do in Duluth. We’ve chosen a few events for you to check out.
William A. Irvin Haunted Ship
There’s something haunted bobbing around in the lake in Duluth and you’re invited to check it out. For the entire month of October, on weekends, you can tour the Irvin, which has been transformed into a ghastly hulk where your worst nightmares are sure to come to life. Is what you see real? The ship is open for terrifying self-guided tours on Fridays and Saturdays. Visit the website or call 218-722-7876 for hours and details.
Boo at the Zoo
Safe and sane trick-or-treating for the wee ones can be had at Lake Superior Zoo, where they promise to “NEVER run out of candy.” The kids can also participate in Halloween-themed activities, visit the animals and play in the pumpkin patch. Dress them in costume because there will be an hourly costume contest. Free hayrides, face painting, food vendors and more round out a fun day at the zoo. This event happens October 10 and 17 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Purchase tickets and learn more on the zoo’s website.
13th Annual Duluth Senior Expo
Hey, October isn’t just for the little ones. Boomers are invited to spend the day at DECC on October 13 for the 13th Annual Duluth Senior Expo. You’ll join thousands of others who attend this event for the screenings, live entertainment, information and more. Everyone that attends will receive a free copy of the Northland Senior Resource Guide.
Now. . . if only somebody could get them to change the name to the “Boomer Expo” (we are NOT “seniors!”) and bring in the Rolling Stones.
DECC is located at 350 Harbor Drive. Learn more about the event online.
Hartley Nature Center's Howl-o-Ween
Bring the kids for Halloween crafts and games, activities and of course treats! It happens on Halloween day, October 31 from 10 a.m. until noon and again at 1:30 to 3:30. Visit Hartley’s website to learn more.
Miller Hill Mall is throwing a Halloween shindig for the kids and admission is FREE! Safe trick-or-treating, kids activities and “surprises” are all on tap. Learn more here.
