And if you’re looking for fun things to do in your neck of the woods, you’ll want to watch this segment!!
 
Karen Walker from 4kidsinPA stopped by with a list of must-do events around Central PA.
 
Huntingdon County:
“Huntingdon changes its name to HAUNTINGDON during October because of all of the special events going on there for Halloween,” said Walker.  “One of the most popular and unique events is at Lincoln Caverns; Ghosts & Goblins Tours will be held for the 30th year, and they involve a haunted tour through one of Lincoln Caverns' Crystal caves, as well as a haunted hayride and a haunted trail. These are going on every Friday & Saturday in October; they also have a less-scary option on Saturdays for families with younger kids.”
 
Centre County:
“On October 19, The Howard Fire Company will hold its 3rd-Annual Punkin Chunkin Fall Festival at Bald Eagle State Park,” said Walker.  “It's relatively new, but it draws a huge crowd. It's everything you expect from a typical Fall Festival, PLUS giant catapults that fling pumpkins over 900 feet at targets floating on the lake.”
 
Clearfield County:
“Bilger's Rocks in Grampian, Clearfield County is a cool place to visit anytime; it's a natural area with huge sandstone formations, caves, cliffs, passageways; and on October 25 & 26 they will host Haunted Hay Rides,” said Walker.  “The hay rides start at dusk and cost $5 per person; but they folks at Bilger's Rocks told us they would waive the fee for families who have financial hardships.”
 
Blair County:
“Hollidaysburg hosts a big Pumpkin Festival every year; this one is scheduled for October 19 and it takes place in downtown Hollidaysburg,” said Walker.  “There is live entertainment and fall-themed activities, and over 50 non-profit organizations use this as a way to spread information about their services.”
 
Cambria County: 
“Weakland Farms in Portage has offered a Corn Maze every fall for the past 10 years. If you've never done a corn maze, they are really fun,” said Walker.  “You enter, try to find your way to the end, and stop at stations that are tucked throughout the maze to answer questions. It’s a fun way to enjoy the outdoors. Weakland Farms also has a smaller indoor hay maze for little kids, pumpkin patch, hay rides and more.”
