Wayzata’s Boo Blast Lets Kids Celebrate Halloween Before the Sun Goes Down

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Halloween, kids and parents alike can enjoy Wayzata’s annual Boo Blast celebration. The event takes place largely in the parking lot of Colonial Square near Lunds & Byerly’s, with lots of music and free food.

Bill Ogle, store manager of the Wayzata Lunds & Byerly’s, says kids can dance along with a DJ, get their faces painted and walk around local stores for trick or treating. And the event brings the community together, says Becky Pierson, president of the Wayzata Chamber of Commerce. “It’s just a fun opportunity for people to enjoy Wayzata, and for our businesses to roll out the welcome mats for families in the area.”
