TWIN CITIES TRICK-OR-TREAT

If you are new to the Twin Cities, note that municipalities don’t set trick-or-treat hours around here. Expect kids from the time school releases until you turn out your porch light (maybe later). We usually see a lot of trick-or-treat events in Twin Cities grocery stores and malls, but this year, we aren’t expecting much.  We’ll add them here if they start popping up. Check out both our Free Halloween Events and Paid Halloween Events for community trick-or-treat alternatives.

FOR TWEENS & TEENS

We know that Halloween for tweens and teens can be a tricky holiday to navigate. What kind of options to they have for traditional Halloween fun in the Twin Cities? We’ve got options to go out as a family as well as events done independently.
