Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - October 14-16

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup 

Halloween Events:

It’s Mid-October which means that Halloween is fast approaching. There are several great Halloween events this weekend including Halloween Fun at Hudson Mills Metropark, Monster Smash at Rolling Hills, and Trick or Treat on the River at Gallup Park. 

It is also the first weekend for Greenfield Village’s Hallowe’en. We have tickets this weekend and will share a review by Monday. If you’re interested in going, I suggest buying your tickets now since tickets are limited.

With nice weather for Saturday and a chance of rain for Sunday, it is also a great weekend to enjoy fall activities like cider mills, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches.

Beyond the calendar events, there is lots of fall fun to enjoy. Last weekend, we had a great time at Cedar Point for HalloWeekends. Check out our 7 tips for visiting Cedar Point.

We have plans to visit a Corn Maze later this month (and it’s always great to combine that with apple an orchard trip).
