I'm going to be honest with you, I do not enjoy being scared, so my husband and I will be steering clear of the majority of the activities listed below. But I know that a lot of people LOVE October and all of the Halloween festivities that come with it. There are a lot of fun fall festivals in the area, but I also wanted to make sure you knew about all of the frights and scares that you can submit yourselves to this month. You have two and a half weeks to enjoy this spooky madness so get out there and enjoy!
