The weather may be cooling off, but London, Ontario is still red hot when it comes to fall events! If you enjoyed September events like the return of the Western Fair, Skydrive by Airshow London and Western University's Homecoming, then you'll love what the rest of the season has in store for the Forest City!


outdoor adventure and family fun

Fall is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy an outdoor adventure! Whether it's getting lost in a corn maze, taking a bite out of a freshly picked apple or finding that perfect pumpkin for your front porch, some of the best things of the season happen out in nature. For a full day of family fun at the farm, a short drive to Kustermans Adventure Farm or Clovermead Adventure Farm will provide tons of fun fall activities like wagon rides, corn mazes and pick-your-own pumpkins. If you're looking to stroll through an apple orchard for the afternoon, Apple Land Station is for you! You can pick a bushel of apples or spend the day playing at their family farm and visiting the farm animals.

Looking for some family fun for your little pumpkins? "Pumpkin Drop" is going down October 27, 29 and 30 at the London Children's Museum and is sure to be a smashing good time for the little ones! Add even more adventure to your day with the "Halloween Pumpkin Patch" at the Covent Garden Market on October 29. This will get your family in the fall spirit with activities like face painting, a bouncy castle, pumpkins for sale and more!

Is fall food more your passion? Heeman's "Food Trucks on the Farm" is the perfect event to try out some amazing local food trucks and is taking place every weekend until October 9. While you're there, you can also pick up some fall decor for your home! Meanwhile back in town, the Covent Garden Market is having their "Fall Food Fest" on October 16 where they will be celebrating food, fall and community in the Market Square.


Halloween Haunts

For those wanting to get into the Halloween spirit, Storybook Gardens is getting spooky with "StoryBOO" from October 13 to 30. This evening event, geared towards families with children under the age of 10, will see the park transformed into a spooky (but not scary) place! For the adults, the Grand Theatre's "Grand Ghosts" is bringing some eerie vibes to the main stage. This haunting production will see ghosts that haunt the Grand relive an event that happened over 100 years ago. This production will run from October 13 to November 5. Looking for a scare you won't forget? Grosvenor's Haunted Lodge invites you to test your will as you venture through the disturbing results of the dark side of science. Check it out if you dare during the last two weekends of October.
