Around Town – Oct. 21, 2022
This weekend, there are ways to get active, get scared, or do both at the same time.
North End Nightmare 5k
Find your most comfortable costume, and get ready to run for your life. Saturday is the North End Nightmare 5k in Superior. It’s a Grandma’s Marathon race benefiting the Young Athletes Foundation. There’s a costume contest involved, and free Spider Dash kids races too. Pre- and post-race festivities are at Earth Rider Brewing.
Superior Fire Department Open House
A little ways down Tower Avenue, the Superior Fire Department is hosting some less scary fun: an open house. They invite families to come by between 1-4 p.m. on Saturday. People can tour the fire station, make sure car seats are installed correctly, and enjoy children’s activities. This is the first time firefighters have hosted the open house in their new headquarters on Tower. It’s free to attend.
Beargrease FurK Festival
The John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon is having a FurK Festival. It’s at the Snowflake Nordic Ski Center. There are 1k, 5k, and 10k races all Saturday morning followed by small business vendors, music, and a sled dog meet-and-greet.
Tommy’s Car Wash Tunnel of Terror
At the Tommy’s Express Car Wash on Central Entrance in Duluth, you can get a scare without even getting out of your car. The business is hosting the “Tunnel of Terror.” For $20, your car will get clean, and Tommy’s employees will be jumping out and providing some scares too. The Tunnel of Terror happens from 7-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
