I’m Nathan Blackwell, Mayor of the City of St. Cloud.

The City of St. Cloud has plenty of opportunities for Fall fun this year. Our popular Trail of Terror is back this year at Peghorn Park. The dates are October 22nd, 23rd, 29th and 30th from 7 to 11 p.m. nightly. Tickets are $10 per person and are available at the gate.

If scary isn’t your thing, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Painting with a Pumpkin will be Sunday, October 24 and 10- a.m. at the Chris Lyle Aquatic Center. Cost for this arts and crafts event is $5 per person and includes apple cider, pumpkin donuts and painting supplies.

We’re also having a Monster Mash, which features a Halloween dance, trick-or-treating, games and more! We’ll have a costume contest for kids, adults and group entries. Monster Mash will be held on Saturday, October 30th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Ranch at St. Cloud. Tickets are just $5 per person. Children ages 2 to 13 and their families are welcome to attend.

Our Downtown business association is holding their annual trick or treat event again this year. Downtown trick-or-treat will be Saturday, Oct. 30, from 5 to 7 p.m. Downtown businesses will be handing our candy, so come dressed in your favorite costume! This is a free, family-friendly activity.

We hope to see you soon at these events here in St. Cloud, your Centerplace for Life!
