This week you'll find lots of great fall fun activities, some easy ways to save money on costumes and more. Enjoy!

Family Fun

Take the kids to Krispy Kreme every Wednesday from 6 to 8pm and they can frost and sprinkle a free doughnut. There will also be arts and crafts at both Austin locations.

Sweet Berry Farm is one of my favorite places to go this time of year. You can buy pumpkins, stuff your own scarecrow, take a hayride, wind your way through the corn maze, pick flowers and your kids can jump til their heart is content. It’s free to go, pumpkins and some of the other activities do cost, but it is a full days worth of fun. Sweet Berry Farm is open 8:30am to 5pm except for Wednesdays. Sweet Berry Farm is located at 1801 FM1980, Marble Falls.

The Elgin Christmas Tree Farm offers some terrific fall fun too. This weekend and next is the pumpkin festival. Admission is $6 but it gets you lots of great things including hayrides, pumpkin painting and more. Monday October 14th is the open house. Admission is $6 you get hayrides, corn mazes, playgrounds, duck races and more. You’ll pay extra to decorate a pumpkin.

Saw some of my Facebook friends post this. The Mueller development is having a movie night at the Mueller Lake Park Outdoor amphitheater Friday, October 11th. The featured film: The Lorax. Kids activities start at 6:30pm, movie begins at sunset. Bring snacks and blankets just no chairs. More info here.
ACC Round Rock is hosting a free Star Party Friday, October 11th from 5:30 to 9:45pm. It’s a great way to get your kids interested in science. See the full schedule here.
Brushy Creek Park is a great place for the family and this Saturday, October 12th is hosting a free kids fish event from 8am to 1pm. There will be an artificial pond stocked with fish and another area filled with rubber fish for smaller kids. For more information, or to cover Cedar Park Kid Fish, please contact Jenny Paul, Recreation Specialist for the City of Cedar Park, at 512.401.5514 or by e-mail at jennifer.paul@cedarparktexas.gov.
