I love Halloween. Just love it. There are so many fun things to do with this holiday. (All the spectacle of Christmas without all that pesky gift giving.) So, go get your costume and have some spooky fun at these Best Halloween Events and Attractions in the St. Cloud Area.



Nothing gets the Halloween blood pumping quite like a good ol' spook house, where the scares come often and in every darkened room. The Cold Spring Jaycees have moved their haunted house to Richmond this year for a 20-minute all indoor scare. Get a sneak peak at this year's frightfully-fun haunted house from Dave McCord of 98 Country.com.  Click here to see Terror on 23's schedule.  $10 a ticket.
