Did I really just write November in that title? That means we all know what holidays are right around the corner. So let's take advantage of the rest of Fall this weekend.

Here are my top picks for October's finale.

McCloud Park Prairie Maze


  • Last Call: Grab a map and navigate McCloud Nature Park's Prairie Maze shaped like a raccoon, grab some seasonal apples and baked treats at Beasley's Orchard, take in the Scarecrow Display in Downtown Danville or pet the farm animals at Hogan Farms. These fall happenings are ending this weekend!
  • Celebrate Halloween: You have many options here but one tried and true event for the entire family is Sat-Terror-Day from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Richard A. Carlucci Recreation and Aquatic Center, 651 Vestal Road in Plainfield. Members and non-members get to attend for free and enjoy pumpkin bowling, hayrides, games, crafts and face painting (get a design to match your costume!).
  • PJ Party: Project ANGEL is giving us a good reason to go out in public in our pajamas. Roll out of bed and join them for the Halloween Pajama Hustle on Oct. 31 to raise money for the organization. Choose a 1-mile or 5K course along Avon Town Hall Park. If you bring a new pair of PJs to donate, you get $5 off your registration. If running in pajamas is not your thing, they are also giving an award for best costume.
  • Campfire Tales: If you are looking for a great option for teens, head to McCloud Nature Park, 8518 N. Hughes Road, North Salem, on Saturday for Campfire Stories. Park Naturalists will be telling stories around a warm campfire while you enjoy gourmet S'mores. 


Whatever you decide to do, enjoy the last of October and all that it represents from pumpkins to Halloween to Fall treats to Mother Nature's beauty. For more things to do anytime, check out the Visit Hendricks County Events Calendar.
