Weekend Things to Do in the Hocking Hills - October 5-6

It's the first weekend of October. The weather is finally perfect and you just know those changing leaves are right around the corner. 

You've got to get here for one of these fun things to do:

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, like the Pumpkin Walk. Or have some paper fun while making a craft. 

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. 

Raise a Beer

Food trucks, beers and live music?! Does it get any better than that? It does when you can bring your favorite gear to show off to people that will appreciate it. Make sure to stop at Beers, Gears & Cheers

Make a Stop at the Farmers' Market

Get started eating local with a stop at the Athens Farmers' Market or the Lancaster Farmers' Market. And even better, you'll get the chance to shake the hand of the person that made your food. 

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. 

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.
