Ok, there might be a crazy heat wave going on, and it may not feel like Halloween is coming up, but it doesn’t matter because it’s still Fall! And there are plenty of Fall themed events this month. Halloween fans can experience an evening of ghost stories, haunted museums after dark, and paranormal hikes. If you aren’t into scary stuff you can make your own candles, pumpkin spice cocktails, and try the BRN/Endure Barre class. Fall into October events!
