While the leaves are turning beautiful colors of gold, orange and red, and little ghouls and boys are getting ready for the tradition of dressing up and trick-or-treating, it is a wonderful time to celebrate this “spooktacular” season in Greater Grand Forks, and there are plenty of things to help you do that! It all kicked off this past weekend as zombies visited Town Square for the 2nd Annual Zombie Music Fest hosted by the North Valley Arts Council.
Nelson’s Pumpkin Patch is located in Emerado, just minutes west of Grand Forks. In addition to offering a large patch full of all sorts of pumpkins, there are also hayrides, corn maze, Gruesome Granary Haunted House, Haunted Hollow Road, Haunted Hen House (pre-schoolers) and much more. Their season runs from September 17 to October 29, weekdays 3-6 p.m. and weekends 11 a.m.-6p.m. While there, make sure to look for the Big Pumpkin!
On October 28 and 29, spirits from our community’s past will descend on the normally quiet grounds of the Myra Museum to fill your Halloween with fright and fun! The 3rd Annual Legends of Terror Haunted House, for those 16 and older, will run both days starting at 8 p.m. to 12 midnight.
For all the little ghosts and goblins who prefer not-too-scary stories and way-too-sweet treats, there is a special Half Pint Haunt on October 30, from 2 to 5 p.m., also on the Myra Museum grounds.
In the production “Bell, Book and Candle”, Gillian has fallen in love with Shep, and while love can be complicated enough, things get extra twisty for Gillian, because she is a witch. Since witches aren’t supposed to fall in love, and if they do, they must give up their powers, what will Gillian do? John Van Druten’s classic, romantic comendy comes to the Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre (aka Fire Hall Theatre) stage just in time for Halloween. The production will run from October 13 to 29. Tickets are $15/adults and $12/students, seniors and military.
