We’re almost through the first week of October 2015! It’s amazing how summer flew by and we’re heading toward winter. There is so much to do this month in Bloomington and we’ve chosen some events we think you will want to attend.
Bloomington’s Farmer’s Market is winding down for another year but you still have two more Saturdays (the last market is October 17). Get your fresh produce, honey, maple syrup, cheese and more. Find details here.

What fun this one will be! You’re invited to join Ryan, Fish, Shannon, Bangs and Rudy from KS95’s Morning Show for what just might be one of the most fun Halloween bashes in the Twin Cities, the Purgatory Ball.
There will be contests for the scariest, hottest and most over-the-top costumes, dinner with an open bar and dancing to live music.
This happens on Halloween night, Saturday, October 31st, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington and it’s a 21 and over event. There are several different ticket packages, priced from $95 to $350 and you can reserve them by calling 952-893-8420.
