5 Hot Spots For Halloween 2017!
by Bradley Loiederman

Halloween weekend may have come and gone, but it’s not time to put that costume away just yet. In just one more day, the ghouls and goblins will arise as All Hallow’s Eve takes hold. Being on a Tuesday this year may make planning the perfect Halloween a little difficult, but don’t fret; we’ve got you covered! Check out the Halloween activities below to plan a perfect night.

REZZ @ Skyway Theater

What better way to get into the Halloween mood than by taking a trip out of this dimension with the alien goddess herself, REZZ! Since her last time in Minneapolis, REZZ has released her debut album titled Mass Manipulation and has seen it hit the top 30 of three different Billboard tracks. The extreme success of her album led her to take it one step further: in September, REZZ announced that she was partnering with a Chicago-based illustrator to create a 60-page comic book based off of the album and of their combined hypnotic view. She has been using visuals from the comic book and from other collaborations throughout her entire world tour, further transporting the audience to a new reality. So while you’re transforming into your Halloween character, transport yourself to an outer world at the Mass Manipulation Tour! Tickets are available here.

$31 Tattoos at Modify Tattoo

Looking for a bit of new ink on the low? Well Modify Tattoo’s Halloween flash deal may tickle your fancy. With over 120 flash tattoo options ranging from cartoon characters to Sailor Jerry-style flowers, Modify Tattoo’s Halloween deal has the largest selection in the metro. Many have color and shading in them as well, making that $31 well worth it. Modify is located right of US-10 in Becker, and their deal will be starting at noon. So make sure to get in line early and grab yourself a Halloween tattoo!

GlowFlow Yoga at YogaFit Studios

If typical Halloween events are not your deal, YogaFit Studios may have something for you. At 7pm on Halloween, they will be hosting a free glow-paint-fueled yoga class titled GlowFlow. Black lights in the ceilings will allow everyone to shine, and paint and glow-sticks will be provided and free to use however you’d like. Costumes are always encouraged but definitely are not required; so whether you’re trying to let your Halloween spirit shine or are just looking for a fun and free thing to do, check out YogaFit Studios in Richfield at 7pm.

Croak: BareBones Halloween Show

Mixing performance art with spooks, BareBones is determined to bring a multi-faceted live performance to Hidden Falls this Halloween. BareBones Puppets is a performance art company in Minneapolis that uses stilting, fire, aerial, live music, and puppets to create extravagant outdoor dance spectacles. Croak incorporates creepy and deranged costumes and caricatures to infuse that Halloween spookiness into their performance. Gates open at 6:30, and there is a $10-20 suggested donation (however, no one will be turned away due to the inability to pay). So if you’re trying to find another live show before REZZ, make sure to check out Croak!

Olson Haunted House

If you want to get one last scare in for the year, make sure to check out the Olson Haunted House in Chanhassen! Open only two nights a year, the Olson Haunted House is one of the best DIY haunted attractions around and has been going on for over 16 years. While the haunt’s most known part is their maze of horrors, the Olson family has added a second part of the haunt this year, the labyrinth! Admission is fully donation-based, and all donations will go to the Minnesota Special Olympics. The haunted house will run from 6:30-11 on the night of Halloween, so make sure to swing by and get one last jump before the season is over.
