Celebrate the Season at a Fun Fall Festival

October 14, 2013

Seasonal fun for Chicago residentsOne of the great benefits of owning Chicago real estate is the fact that there is always plenty to do inside the city, or just a short drive out into the country. There are two big events coming up – one this weekend and one the following weekend – that you should check out with friends and family!

This weekend, Oct. 18 through 20, is the Mount Vernon Fall Festival. This three-day October festival in downtown Mt. Vernon kicks off after work on Friday and goes through Sunday night, and it includes a beer tent with live entertainment, children’s area, food, fun, car show, band competition, pumpkin competition and so much more. The parade is always a joy to watch, and kicks off at 2 p.m. on Saturday, and it is followed by a chili cook-off and car show. Mount Vernon is located between four and five hours from the Loop, so make sure to find local accommodations or prepare to do a lot of driving.

If you live closer to the city and want to get some fall fun in without travelling so far, you can visit the Brookfield Zoo‘s Boo! at the Zoo event. This weekend event is family-friendly and features a costume parade, costume showcase, professional pumpkin-carving demonstrations, not-so-scary games and activities, special animal Zoo Chats and haunted hayrides, all on top of the many exhibits and other great reasons to visit the zoo. Events are held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. this weekend and next.

What other fall events are you looking forward to in or around Chicago?
