Halloween Weekend in Madison is coming up! People have been drawn to State Street for Halloween partying since 1979. In 2006 the city of Madison took control of Halloween on State Street and the party officially became known as “Freakfest“. Since then, the annual party has drawn crowds of young adults dressing up in costumes. This year Freakfest is on Saturday, October 27th. The event is $10 in advance or $15 at the gate and has tons of live music on several different stages. MPM has several sets of tickets to Freakfest this year & we want to treat you! More information and how to enter to win below!
Halloween weekend is always a blast! Freakfest draws a lot of new people to town. While we are all about meeting new people and enjoying the festivities of the weekend, it’s also important to think about safety. Our tips for the event-filled Halloween weekend are simple:
- Talk with your roommates in advance about expectations and discuss who you will be with, who will be with you, and who will be staying at your apartment.
- If you’re dressing up and going out, tell your roommates or friends that you will be with what you are wearing in case you get separated.
- Lock your cars and don’t leave valuables in plain sight.
- Lock your apartment when you aren’t home, and ask your roommates to do the same.
- Have fun! Whether you are going to Freakfest and have a group costume or are staying in and watching scary movies with your roommates, enjoy the weekend!
Below are some links for costume ideas, scary movie recommendations, and a website with all things “Halloween in Wisconsin.” Find a Corn Maze, Pumpkin Patch or Haunted House to really make the most of this spooky season.
Have a safe and fun Halloween weekend!
