While fall represents the season when sports enthusiasts huddle together to celebrate football, there's more to fall than the excitement of pigskin. October is also a time when pumpkins are seen in abundance and ghosts, goblins and other mysterious creatures take over Greater Oklahoma City.
For the next few weeks, spook-chilling festivities will fill calendars of residents throughout Greater Oklahoma City, leaving all OKC'ers with plenty of fun-filled entertainment. OKC has a little bit of everything going on this time of year – opportunities for sipping apple cider while enjoying an old-fashioned hayride, making some new furry friends at one of the many petting zoos, picking out that perfect pumpkin at a pumpkin patch, experiencing the thrill of a haunted museum and everything in between.
