It seems like there are two camps when it comes to Halloween:  those who really get into the celebration with costumes, decorations, and candy and those who roll their eyes when they see the first items show up at the store right after the 4th of July.  Whichever side of the aisle you sit on, one thing most can agree on is that Halloween was tailor-made for kids and those with families often seek out all of the events that happen leading up to October 31.

This year in Superior, there are a a few events planned that will surely please everyone carrying a Jack O' Lantern and wielding a costume.  Here's a list of the who, what, where, and when so that you don't miss out.

  • The Haunt At Wentworth Gardens:  Happens now through October 27, with a variety of Friday and Saturday times.  What's in store if you visit?  Besides the haunted house, there is also a corn maze, bouncy house, pumpkins, face painting, hayrides, concessions, even tree and shrub sales (it is located at a greenhouse, after all).  Many of the events occur indoors, so this makes a great event for the whole family - even if the weather isn't so great.  There is even a "not-so-scary" haunted house planned for the really young trick-or-treaters.  Wentworth Gardens is located just 10 minutes outside of Superior, off Highway 2 in Wentworth, Wisconsin:  4474 S Wentworth Road.  Click here to visit their Facebook page for open dates and hours.
