There's no shortage of things for the little (and grown-up) ghouls and goblins to do for Halloween. We've collected as many events as we could find and put them all here for your convenience. You may also want to collect something as well — nonperishable food items — as many of these events require one to get in the door.
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls University Theatre will present "Little Shop of Horrors," a comedy rock musical, Oct. 27-29 and Nov. 3-5 in the Blanche Davis Theatre located in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m.
The Dakota County Historical Society is seeking information from county residents for an upcoming exhibit on life during World War I opening in 2017. The project is being supported through a grant funded by an appropriation to the Minnesota Historical Society from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Through the grant awarded to the organization, an independent researcher has been hired to assist with research for the exhibit.
Beginning in 2017, the physicians who provide orthopedic care at Northfield Hospital's FamilyHealth Medical Clinic in Farmington will do so under a new name. Summit Orthopedics has assumed operations of Mankato Orthopedic and Fracture Clinic's office in Faribault and will now oversee operations in Farmington, Lakeville, and Northfield, the company announced Thursday.
Farmington's 30th annual Halloween Walk will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28 at Dodge Middle School, 4200 208th St. W. The event will be held in the gym, and participants are asked to enter the doors on the west side of the building. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes, bring their trick-or-treat bags and a non-perishable food item for the Farmington Food Shelf. Costumed characters, local businesses and organizations will hand out free, safe candy. Parents should accompany their children.
Halloween in 1900 was a time for pranks and spooky fun. The Dakota Heritage Village is hosting "All Hallows Eve: 1900 Halloween" from 1-8 p.m. on Oct. 21 and 22. Tractor-pulled trolleys will transport the audience back in time to explore the traditions of Halloween as they would have been celebrated in 1900. There will be a "Frankenstein" silent moving picture at the village hall, spooky stories in the library, a fortune teller who uses apple peels at the Harris House, a talk at the cemetery about old burial customs, and a treasure hunt.
With the election fast approaching and many voters already headed to the polls through Minnesota's robust early voting system, the time has come for a look at some of the candidates seeking public office in our area. Over the next three weeks, we'll be publishing candidate surveys for local and state races that affect the residents of Farmington and Rosemount. This week, we've published responses from candidates for Mayor of Farmington, Farmington City Council, and the Farmington School Board.
School board candidate Kristin Goodreau responds to questions about why she should be elected, and what the biggest issues are for the students and families in the Farmington Area School District.
