We have given you a few fun and festive fall and Halloween options for this weekend. Here is a recap:

  • Where/When: Water Street and E. Third Street, Saturday from 10 a.m.-noon
  • Cost: Free
  • Why go: Your kids can trick-or-treat at the Farmer's Market on the last day the market is open for the season. Grab some breakfast and get one last walk around for the season while your kids receive pre-Halloween treats.

  • Where/When: (at the Gazebo), Saturday from 2-4 p.m.

I was in O'Connors on Friday night. It was amazing! Incredible detail and Halloween decorations. Felt like I was in the Haunted House at Disney! Fun..
