Another Fall week in October brings about another week packed with events in Duluth. To add a little fun and excitement to your week, I found a few freebees that sounded especially intriguing... On Monday, Oct. 14, SOAR Career Solutions employment agency will be hosting a variety of informational session classes, for those of you who are interested in exploring a new career opportunity. They also have a Facebook page that can give you more information. These sessions will be held in the Arrowhead Building on 205 W. 2nd Street, Duluth, at 2:00 p.m. And in case you are not feeling so ambitious, all day free pool and darts at Dubh Linn Irish Pub is always a great alternative.
Ever wonder what it sounds like in outer space? Well, on Tuesday, Oct. 15, UMD is giving an opportunity to leave earth for a bit and immerse into a 60 minute percussion piece, "Sights and Sounds from Outer Space"," performed by local resident and artist, Gene Koshinski. The performance will take place in the Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium at 7:30 p.m.
The harvest season is coming to an end; so don't miss your chance to catch the local farmer's markets while you can. On Thursday, Oct. 17, the Lincoln Park Farmer's Market will be at the Harrison Community Center from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. This will be one of the last chances of the year to purchase their diverse and delicious food.
Friday, Oct. 18, brings about a few of the first zombie inspired events of the year, setting off the creepy vibes of Halloween. The Scottish Rite Auditorium will be showing The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari, a 1920's horror/ murder mystery flick, at 2:00 pm. And why stop there? Later that evening from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., UMD will be hosting their third annual Zombie Fest in the Duluth Egyptian Theatre at the Duluth Masonic Center. Join various professors from both UMD and St. Scholastica as they lecture their theories about zombie apocalypse and zombie film.
On a more lighthearted note, the The Glensheen Mansion and Museum will be hosting a volunteer pumpkin carving event on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. Legacy Glass Works will also be hosting their grand reopening all day, which includes live glass blowing, stellar sales, raffles and giveaways, and live music throughout the day.
That's what I've got for you this week. If you have any requests of any particular cheap events that you would like me to find, feel free to contribute! We are always open to suggestions. Enjoy the week!
