There are plenty of ways to get your scare on this weekend and the Twin Cities has options for those looking for a thrill.
KSTP’s Rusty Gatenby talked to Bradley Traynor, of MyTalk 107.1, about what you can do with friends and family this weekend to welcome the spooky holiday.
Today, the Twin Cities Horror Festival kicks off at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis. For 10 days, seven groups are putting on a variety of different ways to get the pants scared off of you. There you can enjoy theater, film and music. The festival will run from today to Nov. 3.
The James Sewell Ballet dance Macabre is another option if you’d like a Halloween-themed production. You can see people in scary clothing and the ballet of course. The performers do the production based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. The performance is Friday night at 8 p.m. in the Cowell Center in downtown Minneapolis.
The Peruvian Nightingale is also something you can go to this weekend if you are looking for something not so spooky. The ballet is about a peacock in Peru which is transformed into a dance performance. The show starts today and goes to Oct. 28.
