October 23, 2019: Find It In Duluth!

Looking for some Halloween fun? You'll find it in Duluth this week!

By: Maarja Anderson Hewitt | October 23, 2019

Happy Wednesday, folks! You may have heard we had quite the Nor’easter this week. Monday was a rough day with Lake Superior sharing her wrath. We had power outages, localized flooding, road closures, bridge closures, and lots and lots of wind. But we made it! There certainly is some damage to clean up, but all your favorite Duluth restaurants, hotels, attractions, and events are OPEN. We are NOT underwater! The reconstructed portion of the Lakewalk weathered the storm exactly as it was designed to. Other portions of the Lakewalk, still damaged from the other 4 storms we’ve had, were damaged further, but luckily no work was being done to reconstruct them just yet. That’s for next summer! If you’re visiting this week, don’t worry – Duluth is ready for you! Here’s a look at some of the fun, including lots of Halloween fun, you can find in Duluth this week:

Duluth Pack is hosting their annual Ladies Night Thursday, October 24 from 5:30-8pm. They are partnering with Wild State Cider and apparel partner PrAna for tastings and raffles! Get all the details in their Facebook Event.
