Spooktacular! (Travel Theme: Spooky)

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.).

Travel. Garden. Eat.

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!
