    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Looking to Curb the Stress this Weekend?

After an extremely long week, I am looking forward to relaxing this weekend and trying to forget all of the stress I am enduring.  There are a ton of great events going on in the Duluth area to take up both my interest and yours!  Here are some of my favorite picks for happenings around Duluth on Friday and Saturday that are sure to help relieve the stress:


Haunted Shack!- This tradition for Halloween is finally opened, and instead of its typical location in Morgan Park, this year the Shack will be open at the Buffalo House Junction.  Admission is $12.00, but this event is soooo worth the cost for cover.  You will enjoy yourself and forget any other worries on your mind!

Haunted Ship- Again, another Halloween tradition for the Twin Ports, and one of my favorites if I do say so myself.  Located on the William A. Irvin ship down in Canal Park, this haunted tour is centered around zombies this year, and should be one to scare your pants off.  Admission is $10.00 and tours go from 6:30-10:30, and again, totally worth the cost for entry.  Bring a boyfriend, girlfriend, or crush to cling to…you might need em for this one!


Suicide Awareness Memorial Walk- This free walk begins and ends at Bethesda Lutheran Church in Carlton and is a great cause for suicide prevention.  Registration is at 9:30 am, and the walk will be followed by a memorial show and refreshments.

Boo at the Zoo!- A personal favorite of mine and a great place to bring younger siblings or kiddos.  Located at the Lake Superior Zoo from 10:00 am-4:00 pm, come for zoo trick-or-treating, treats, hayrides, costume contests, and a haunted house!  Best time of the year to enjoy the zoo and fall colors.

UMD Hockey vs Ohio State- This will be going down at the Amsoil Arena at approximately 7:00 pm.  Tickets are a little pricey ($30.00), but the Amsoil is an outstanding arena and the game is sure to be heated.  If you can snag tickets, I highly encourage you to check it out!
