The beautiful weather is finally here, and Halloween is just around the corner. 

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to go to local Halloween and Fall related events! The Fall weather, and the variety of unique local experiences that go with it, makes it the PERFECT time to be outside enjoying this beautiful weather with your family.

Whether you are looking for a Spooky Haunted House to visit, a local Pumpkin Patch to enjoy or some fun corn mazes, we have put together this list of fun, festive events for you to enjoy.
