First off, before I dive into the Halloween events that appear to be happening around Central Minnesota, I need to give kudos where kudos are due. Bravo, high-five, job well done, gold star, and all the praise I can think to give to Laura on thrifty Minnesota for compiling a list of not just a few towns in Minnesota's, but pretty much ALL the towns in Minnesota.

Seriously, I went looking to see what activities or events were going on in Central Minnesota and happened upon this article "Minnesota Trunk or Treat and Halloween Events for 2022" and to say I was amazed, is an understatement. This list is jaw-dropping really, and had to be TIME CONSUMING! You get the picture it's impressive and worth checking out if you are anywhere in Minnesota and want to see what's happening in your town or any towns near by and get in on the fun with the family!

Now for those of you in the Central Minnesota area looking for more Halloween fun to take the family too, I did the digging for you. Here's what I found off this list, and I have no doubt there are more you could add, so please email me with more at megan@mix949.com if you got them.

Based off this MAP I found on wikipedia...going to do the best I can to cover what's happening in Central Minnesota, they all will have links for each event to click to get details. Wish me luck!!

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
