Welcome to October! It’s finally beginning to feel like fall outside, and folks who hate our summer humidity are relieved. The leaves are starting to put on a show, back to school traffic is in full effect, and the little people (and plenty of big people) are picking out their Halloween costumes.
This Germantown, MD family farm will host hayrides, a straw maze, corn hole and face painting at their annual festival every weekend through October 29, 2017. Not to mention the photo opps, with a chance to pick your own pumpkin for only 65 cents, or get your toddler’s face painted.
While you’re there, visit the farmer’s market, where you can buy an apple cider donut!
On the weekend of October 20-22, the National Zoo is letting visitors in after hours for 40 treat stations, live entertainment, and carousel rides.
This event is great for families who may have a member with sensory processing disorders. There’s a quiet space in the zoo’s Think Tank area to take a break from the action.
Enjoy the extreme pumpkin carving, visit the elephants, and head home with a commemorate treat bag.
The DC pop-up bar that brought us a Game of Thrones themed drinking experience is now hosting a fright filled experience in the Shaw neighborhood.
And tag me on instagram, because I’d LOVE to see the adorableness.
