The time is almost here for one of the biggest events in the midwest. The Bayfield Apple Festival is just a few weeks away and as always, it is sure to be a packed weekend full of fun.

This is one of many events we have to look forward to as we transition into fall. For the third time, the Cirque Italia Water Circus will be returning to Duluth. The show will take place in late September, with a handful of show options available.

Around the same time, you can attend a Tea, Music and Tour of the historic First Presbyterian Church. They will host a Scottish tea on Saturday, September 24th for a fun and different event.

Of course, we also have many Halloween events to look forward to. Everything from the Haunted Ship to the Haunted Shack to a newer haunted attraction will be back this spooky season, with things kicking off in October.
