Are you one of the 158 million people that the National Retail Federation (NRF) estimates will celebrate Halloween this year? The number is down from last year's high of 170 million, but Halloween is widely celebrated, second only to Christmas in terms of spending. The NRF also found that traditional costumes -- zombies, witches, princesses, superheroes and the like -- reign supreme this year.
There's no shortage of costume parties and Halloween fun to be had in and around the Twin Cities. Below is a list of of some of the events that are a bit off the beaten path, along with the more popular haunts. Feel free to leave a suggestion in the comment section if you know of an event that you feel TC Daily Planet readers should know about! (Go here if you're strictly looking for fall events)MORE »
