Fall Activities for the Whole Family

Posted On: October 5th, 2018

In keeping with this week’s fall theme, I thought it would be fun to have a blog post covering all the fun fall activities happening in the Dayton area. Fall is a wonderful time of year; it is a great time to be outside. The summer heat has been replaced by cooler days, but they aren’t so cold yet that you need a heavy winter coat. With so many different activities to choose from, you could stay busy all season long!

1.       Fall farm festival: Each year Young’s Dairy hosts its fall festival. We went last year and it was so much fun! You can go through the corn maze, sample cheese, and try pumpkin cinnamon sugar donut holes (which sound delicious); plus you can pick pumpkins and try your hand at pumpkin bowling.

2.       Fall festival and old-time craft day: The city of Miamisburg always has something fun going on! This particular festival offers activities for kids as well as basket weaving and quilting displays, hay rides, a Ninja Warrior Run, a climbing wall and zip line. Make sure to say hi to any River Valley staff you may see!

3.       Boo in the Burg: Boo in the Burg is a pub crawl located in downtown Miamisburg. There will be specials on food and drink, free carriage rides, and tons of fun costumes. Tickets are $2 in advance or $3 the same day. This event is only for those 21 and over.

4.       Spooktacular cruise in: Join the Huber Heights Historical Society for their annual spooktacular cruise in. There will be door prizes, raffles, food trucks and of course cars. Costumes are encouraged.

5.       Hocus Pocus Halloween: Located in downtown Middletown, the Hocus Pocus Halloween festival is sure to be a good time. There will be a creepy cruise in with trunk or treat, live music, craft vendors and a free screening of Hocus Pocus. The event is located between Central Ave and First Ave.

6.       Fall train ride: Head down to Lebanon to take a fall train ride on the LM&M railroad. Tickets are $15 for adults, $14 for seniors, and $11 for children aged 2-16. The ride will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes and will have conductors available to tell passengers about the history of Cincinnati, Lebanon, and Northern Railway.
