Winter may be just around the corner, but right now the air is crisp, the weather is clear, and the weekends are starting to fill up. Before you get too busy, don’t forget to make time in your schedule for one of the great events taking place in Southeast Indiana this month.
Looking for a little family fun this fall? You’ll find it at the Lobenstein Farm Pumpkin Festival in St. Leon. Planned for Oct. 20-21, this annual event is fun for kids of all ages. Enjoy pumpkin picking, wagon rides, farm animals and more in the scenic Southeast Indiana countryside. Then, mark your calendar for several great Halloween events taking place in Aurora throughout the month. In addition to Nightmare on Volunteer Drive, a haunted house taking place at the Aurora Firehouse on Friday and Saturday evenings, visitors can go on their very own ghost-hunting expedition at Hillforest Victorian House Museum, which will host a “Ghosts in the Museum” Paranormal Investigation” on October 20, 26 & 27. Finally, join Main Street Aurora for Horror, History & Hauntings on Oct. 27, a special program for adults at the Great Crescent Brewery in downtown Aurora! In addition to a catered dinner by Three Sisters Catering, participants will enjoy Alfred Hitchcock short stories and live vintage commercials starring local "celebrities."
