Interesting Local Events – Week of October 19-25, 2012

October 19, 2012

Fall Foliage

So far, the weather hasn’t been too bad this fall. So there is no reason not to continue taking advantage of it and getting outside. It isn’t too late to enjoy leaf peeping, apple picking, or pumpkin patches.  (For some good ideas on where to go, check out my post from last week and this one from the week before.) This weekend, the Circleville Pumpkin Show is still in full swing, with plenty of tasty pumpkin sweets and treats. Plus don’t miss this weekend’s Apple Butter Festival at Roscoe Village either.

Saturday is once again packed with fall events all over town. Clintonville Beechwold CRC is having a fun fundraiser from 10AM-1PM with lots of family fun activities, plus each family that donates 3+ cans of food gets to take a pumpkin home for free. Grandview Theatre kicks off its annual 24-hour scary movie marathon at noon (Shock Around the Clock). Can’t handle 24 hours of movies? Try Studio 35, where they are showing Shelter, a movie filmed right here in Ohio. Have seeds? Stop over to OSU Urban Arts Space for the Seed Swap.

Sunday should be a perfect day to enjoy the Slate Run Fall Fest in Canal Winchester.

Looking for something a little more frightening for your weekend? I’m personally petrified of haunted houses and the like, but what is October without a little scare? Since I’m not a haunted house connoisseur I leave these listings to the “experts”: Top 31 Haunted Houses by HauntedHouseRatings.com, ColumbusOnTheCheap.com list, OHHauntedHouses.com list, and TheColumbusTeam.com list. Boo at the Zoo sounds like a great event too at The Columbus Zoo.

Our Metro Parks have plenty of outdoor activities. Blacklick Woods is having a 10K nature bike ride Saturday. Check out the Backcountry Dog Hike Saturday at Clear Creek. Chestnut Ridge is playing host to this week’s Commit to be Fit Hike on Sunday or try to Big Tree Hike at Prairie Oaks.

Keep the week going with these events:

I hope you enjoy these events as much as I will this week!
