Oh yes, October. It is perhaps my favorite month out of the entire year. Why, you ask? Because dear reader – it’s time for Halloween. It’s the one time of year when a 25 year old man can suspend disbelief and run around in Jedi garb all weekend long.

It’s wonderful. Because I love Halloween so much, I’m always looking for different way to celebrate the season. One of the most family oriented, local, Halloween oriented events around Pumpkinfest right here in St. Cloud.

The event includes trick or treat stations, petting zoo, pumpkin patch, face painting, hayrides and more. New this year, get lost in the hay maze or bust a move at the screamin’ dance party on the mainstage with DJ Monster Bash Mash. It’s the perfect place to take the kiddos to celebrate the season. It takes place October 19th (Friday) from 4 pm to 7 pm. Not to mention, admission is completely free.
