MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s not very often that we’re scared of the weekend, but this weekend in the Twin Cities, there are plenty of ways to get spooked, even for kids. Plus, there’s something for those who just can’t wait for the snow (speaking of scary).
Twin Cities Film Fest
Ten days, 75 Films. This weekend, the great film tradition continues in Minnesota with the Twin Cities Film Fest. The festival caters to the general public, offering audiences access to the best films the global industry has to offer. Movies will be screened at the ShowPlace ICON Theatre located in St. Louis Park.
Minnesota Ski and Snowboard Expo
Are you one of those who just cannot wait to hit the slopes? There might not be much snow in the forecast, but you can kick off the ski and snowboard season at Mall of America this weekend. It’s the annual Ski & Snowboard Expo, with deals on passes, the latest equipment, and ski reps standing by to answer your questions. Don’t miss the trampoline shows in the Rotunda.
ZooBoo Halloween Festival
With Halloween right around the corner, we have a great way to get in the spooky spirit without scaring the kiddies too much. This weekend, the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory will be transformed into a non-scary Halloween festival for families and young children, with over 200 live, costumed characters interacting with the little ones. This magical event offers families a safe trick-or-treating alternative plus many Halloween surprises.
