Halloween At The General
Thursday, October 31st, 2013 at dusk
Halloween trick or treating may have started in Anoka, Minnesota last century, but Marshfield Hills has taken the annual event to a new level nowadays. The neighborhood is bursting with goblins, ghouls, and monsters (and a few dozen princesses, too) as children from all over walk from historic home to home to collect their treats. The Marshfield Hills General Store anchors the festivities with an open house complete with hot cider and donuts, and a treat of your choice. Don't be afraid to stop by!
