Not only is this weekend MEA, but also it has Halloween fun.  Don those costumes and get out there for candy or more festivities.

Como ZooBoo
Como Zoo and Conservatory

Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 19 (and next weekend)
4:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
Tickets $6 in advance here or $7 at the door

Como Zoo is transformed into a fun and non-frightening Halloween experience.  My kids loved it.  And they didn’t receive ONLY candy in their bags.  We parked on Como Ave. by the State Fair and took the animal shuttle buses to the entrance.  I also recommend going as close to the beginning of ZooBoo as possible because when the sun goes down, it gets pretty chilly.

Fall Fest
Garden by the Woods
Saturday, October 18 and Saturday, October 25   
5:00 p.m.

Enjoy an Oktoberfest for the whole family with root beer tastings, floats and games.

Pumpkin Painting Weekend
Minnetonka Orchards
Saturday, October 18-Sunday, October 19
10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

Minnetonka Orchards is a beautiful orchard.  I love  the scenic drive out there and the orchard itself is breathtaking.  During their Pumpkin Painting Weekend, pumpkins will be availabe for purchase and a painting station will be set up.  You just need to bring your ideas!
