The weather is finally cooling down, but that doesn’t mean activity in Dublin is too! October is jam-packed with fun fall events that people of all ages can enjoy. 

With Halloween quickly approaching, you’ll want to pick out that perfect pumpkin for your pie or jack-o-lantern. Jacquemin Farms has 15 acres of pumpkin patch, so you will certainly find something!  Already got a pumpkin? They also have a large assortment of fall decor items, a Kiddie Playland, and weekend hayrides! 

All Hallows Eve at the Ohio History Center is October 18. The whole family can enjoy some old fashioned fun by playing Old-Time Games, listening to ghost stories by the bonfire, attending an Irish wake, and much more Halloween fun. 

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has a whole line-up of fun this month:

Super Hero Lunch - Join Spiderman and friends for an action-packed afternoon complete with lunch, a show, arts & crafts, and up-close animal encounters. (October 18, 19, 25, & 26)

ZooClue-The Game – This one is for the adults only (21+). You can put your detective skills to use as the Zoo becomes a mystery dinner theater, and you’re a character in it! (October 21-23)

Boo at the Zoo - Enjoy "spook-tacular" rides and attractions along with your favorite action heroes, pirates, and animal encounters.  (Last two weekends in October)

Halloween Celebration – Put your costume on for some tricks, treats, and Halloween fun for the whole family, alongside Batman and Wonder Woman. (October 31 & November 1)

Halloween Twilight Tours - Explore the Zoo after hours and hear stories of animals of Halloween lore. (Limited availability 10/29 and 10/30)

If you want no tricks, just treats, then an Our CupCakery class is for you. They are hosting a Kids’ Halloween-themed Cake Pop decorating class on October 17. 

The Annual Eagle’s Nest & Café Kids Scavenger Hunt at the Giant Eagle Market District in Dublin is happening October 21. Kids are welcome to wear their Halloween costumes while they search for treats, make crafts, and more!

Looking for some spooks? Grab a blanket and check out Grave Tales at the Dublin Branch Library on October 22 for frightful tales on the hill in front of Dublin Cemetery. They get scarier as they go!

Lastly, COSI is hosting their Spooktacular Celebration and the Ohio Game Developer Expo on October 25. Visit various stations throughout COSI for science tricks and tasty treats, then check out presentations from video game developers across Ohio.
