Weekend Things to Do in the Hocking Hills - October 12-13
With the cooler weather and slowly changing leaves, it's a great time to get to the Hocking Hills.
Here is just some of the fun things to do:
Go for a Hike
If you're up for a strenuous hike to see some fall color, then plan on being at Grandma Gatwood's Fall Colors Hike. This six-mile hike is not recommended for individuals that are easily winded.
Wouldn't you love to see the beauty of the Hocking Hills from the comfort of a Jeep? Bring your Jeep or get some friends together to rent a Jeep for Jeepin' in the Hills.
See Local Theater
This weekend, the ABC Players present Clue: The Musical. This musical romp through the beloved board game should be a fun time for all.
Have Halloween Fun
It's time to start celebrating all things Halloween. Looking for the creepy crawly? Get to Wicked Forest or the Sleepy Hollow Experience at Haunted Mountain for all of the scares you can handle. Looking for something for the entire family? Then get to Walker Farm to pick out your pumpkin and enjoy lots of family fall fun. Or make a stop at Pumpkin Fest at the Dairy Barn. You can also try your hand at glass painting.
Enjoy the Fair
The Fairfield County Fair is the last of the season. Don't miss your chance to have fair fun with one of the best fairs while enjoying that milder weather.
Go Back in Time
Did you know the Hocking County Historical Society & Hocking County Genealogical Society have six buildings that you can explore for free? From trying your hand at Morse Code to sitting in a 1900s school desk, there many ways to enjoy the past here. Or celebrate history at Little Cities of Black Diamonds Day.
Raise a Beer
Say Oom Pah at Brewery 33's first Oktoberfest. Enjoy food trucks, live music and of course lots of great Brewery 33 beer.
See the Work of Artists
Men at Work is at The Bowen House. Enjoy the wonderful craftsmanship of these incredible artists.
Hear Live Music
Enjoy the music of the Hocking Hills. Make a stop at Brewery 33, or Hocking Hills Winery hear great local music while also drinking local. Or cheer on the Logan High School choirs as they perform for their annual fall concert.
See the Stars
There's nothing quite like a beautiful starry night. And that starry night looks even better at the John Glenn Astronomy Park. Bring your whole family to marvel at the beauty of the night sky.
