Your Halloween won’t be complete until you attend BareBones’ annual Halloween extravaganza, a time-honored tradition that has been going strong since 1993. Taking place at Hidden Falls Regional Park in St. Paul, the outdoor celebration is a mix of puppetry, music, theater, fire, and stilting. This year’s show, BONESEED: Mist Stories, is themed around migration and colonization. It includes, as in past years, the Altar of the Dead, which can be visited before or after the performance. Co-directed by Malia Burkhart and Tara Fahey in partnership with musical director Venus De Mars, the show also features music by the Brass Messengers. Dress warm, bring a chair if you have one, and get ready for a spiritual ride at this performance ritual. There are also a limited number of straw bales for sitting, and biking to the show is encouraged. Find more info at barebonespuppets.org. Click here to read our cover story on BareBones.
