The season is finally here! No more A/C blasting with the windows up, blue jeans are a possibility, and you can take a walk outside without the humidity making it look like you ran a marathon (unless you actually ran a marathon). We’re stoked to be in fall; haunted houses, Halloween costumes, spooky treats, scary stories, and beautiful scenery. Here’s the run down for fall in Oswegoland:
The Zombie-Infested Haunted Forest
Our spin on a haunted house is Park After Dark: Outbreak. Zombies have infested Oswego and you have to survive the outbreak. Participants meet at South Point and are shuttled into the remote “hot zone.” Your mission is to survive the undead hoards through the woods. The only chance you have is to make it through the course without becoming infected. This event is rated PG-13 for blood, gore, darkness, and ghouls. At the finish of the Outbreak event, participants receive gear commemorating their survival or induction into the zombie force.
Monster Mash Bash
Kids gather to show off their costumes at the Monster Mash Bash. This party has been going for over 30 years and is a perfect opportunity for young ones to get together all dressed up. Young ones can get their face painted, hop in the bounce house, and play tricky games to win prizes. Admission is $5 at the door and adults are free (and you can even dress up).
Limelight Radio Play
Radio Plays are Limelight originals held at the intimate Little White School Museum stage. This October is Whitechapel, a story about London’s infamous Jack the Ripper. The story is based on true events with creative elements added from the theatre company. Tickets are available on their website or at the door.
This fall has been very generous with sun and moderate temperatures. The perfect flannel weather has everyone wanting to pick apples, drink cider, and watch the leaves change. Don’t miss out on all the free parks we have around Oswego. A few that have particularly diverse forests, perfect for fall color tours are:
If you haven’t been to all of these parks, it’s worth the adventure to drive off your usual routes and explore the natural areas right outside your backyard.
