Interesting Local Events – Week of October 5 – 12, 2012

October 5, 2012

This weekend is packed full of plenty of events and activities. Some that you might want to check out:

Friday COSI plays host to TEDxColumbus; if you weren’t able to get tickets to this sold out event, you can still catch it streaming live at Studio 35. The always fun Italian Festival kicks off tonight and runs through the weekend.

This Saturday football is king, with Ohio State taking on Nebraska for a night game under the lights. There will be plenty of fans tailgating the day and night away. But if sports aren’t your style, there is still plenty of fun to be had all around town.  It’s the first Saturday of the month, so head over to the Short North for Gallery Hop. Bring your empty bags and load up at ZeroLandfill Columbus at Eartha Limited. The Harvest Festival is at Ohio Village. Meet up with photographers at Blendon Woods Metro Park for the Photo Prowl. BeardCon takes over the Convention Center. Glacier Ridge Metro Park is taking folks on a Green Energy Tour. Or snuggle up at Columbus Commons for Movies in the Park, where you can catch The Hunger Games on the screens.

The fun doesn’t end on Sunday. Take part in the Audobon Hike at Blendon Woods Metro Park. Take your pooch out to Fido Fest at the Village Green in Worthington, or enjoy food on an open flame at Live Fire at Franklin Park Conservatory.

Need an interesting dinner option for Monday? Franklin Park Conservatory has you covered with Taste of Bexley.

Time hasn’t run out on some of the ideas from last week. You can still head out to Devine Farms Pumpkin Farm for family fun and pumpkins, Franklin Park Conservatory for the must see Sacrifice and Bliss: Aurora Robson exhibit, or help out with the Furniture Bank‘s Tables for Thanksgiving drive.

Have a fabulous week!
