It’s certainly starting to feel festive around town, and you’ll have several chances to get in the holiday spirit this week. Here’s a look at some of the fun you can find in Duluth this week:

The Lake Superior Zoo’s fall fundraiser is Thursday, November 14, offering an evening of wine and beer tasting, great food, live music, and raffles. Uncorked & Tapped for Conversation raises funds for the care of the over 400 animals who call the zoo home. Tickets can be purchased, here.
