Looking for something fun to do this Halloween season in the Twin Cities?  You are in luck because there are some great spooky and Halloween-themed activities going on in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

1. Wicked Wolverine Halloween Bar Crawl

As a kid, we would go door to door for Halloween to get candy.  But as adults, we can go from bar to bar to get drinks!

And that’s exactly what you get to do on the Wicked Wolverine Halloween Bar Crawl.  Admission to this Halloween pub crawl gets you free entry to bars, drink specials, and more.  Find out how to save money on a ticket here.

2. Minneapolis Ghost Tour

What’s Halloween without a few spooks?  You can find out the haunted history behind Minneapolis on this ghost tour.

3. American Monsters Onionheads Revenge

Speaking of spooks, you can find them at the Mall of America over in Bloomington.  And no, I am not referring to how scary high prices for a lot of things have gotten.  I am referring to the special Halloween haunted house that is there this October.  It centers around the story of an Onionhead from the dark bayous of Louisiana seeking revenge.  You can purchase a discounted ticket for this haunted house here.
