MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The fall weather continues to offer up glorious days, so why not get out and enjoy it!

There are plenty of ways to experience autumn this weekend, and as it’s the final weekend before Halloween we found some spooky spots too.

Sever’s Corn Maze

Sever’s Corn Maze is celebrating Halloween a little early this year. On Friday from 5 to 9 p.m. guests can enjoy beer, food, live music and more.

There’s also a costume contest! Dress in your best rock inspired costume for a chance to win some great prizes as well.

How about some puppets in the park?

Petco’s Spooktacular Pet Costume Contest

Who can resist a dog dressed up like a pumpkin?
