October:: Fall Fun and Halloween Events in Duluth


Are you ready to make memories with your family this fall?! We have gathered a few ideas to help you plan out your Halloween events to attend, and we will do our best to update the lists as we find out about local happenings!

Stay Healthy and Safe

Wear your mask when required, bring your hand sanitizer, wash hands with soap and water when possible, stay outdoors or in well ventilated areas socially distanced. Remember to stay home if anyone in your party isn’t feeling well, we have ideas for celebrating at home if this is the case.

Lastly, never feel bad or be embarrassed if you arrive at an activity and do not feel comfortable entering or staying! Have FUN!
