It is that time of year again — Duluth’s Glensheen Estate is gearing up for the 3rd Annual Jack O’Lantern Spooktacular! Sharing my post from last year’s event — definitely worth a visit if you have a chance between Thursday, October 24 and Sunday October 27. from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. (grounds close at 9:00 p.m.).
Beautiful Glensheen mansionin Duluth, Minnesota hosted its second annual “Jack O’Lantern Spooktacular” last weekend. The evenings were classic bone-chilling, northern Minnesota fall weather, but they were clear with an almost-full moon for some of the nights of the event, which added to the spooky fun ambience!
As you enter the grounds, one of the majestic old trees is lit from below, appearing to stretch its branch fingers to the moon.
You are guided by lit pumpkins into the old carriage house, which would be the starting point of your tour if you ever have the chance to take a detailed look at this magnificent property on the shores of Lake Superior. As you exit the carriage house, you walk along the winding path, and can see Duluth’s aerial lift bridge on Canal Park in the distance.
Walking toward the house, a magical sight meets you as you turn to look at Glensheen’s gardens…

Ooh, that must be one creepy, but spectacular sight! 🙂
Disappointed we didn’t get a chance to tour it this year! Was such a fun event.
Looks like fun. Wonder what new things will be presented this year?
I do hope we find time to go this weekend. . . but lately, the hours in the days, days in the week, just aren’t enough for everything!
