It was a busy weekend filled with lots of pre-Halloween festivities. Let’s get right to it!
We boarded the wagon and wound our way through a not-too-scary forest filled with fun decorations and enthusiastic actors.
Once we departed the wagon, we could choose from the scary or not-scary path for some Halloween festival fun. We chose the not-scary path and enjoyed playground equipment, tasty food vendors like Corbo’s, and a glow-stick dance party.
The Haunted Hayrides sell out quickly every year, so stay tuned next year for information on ticket sales!
…pick a pumpkin to decorate and play fun Halloween-themed games.
Plus, there was cider and donuts from Patterson Fruit Farm…a fall classic! We always enjoy these school parties that let the kids (and parents) connect outside of glass and have a great time!
Dinner at Red and Eagles Concert
Saturday evening, my dad and I had tickets to see the Eagles at Quicken Loans Arena (thanks, Mom!) We started our evening with dinner at Red, the Steakhouse. Dad and I made our own surf and turf with a pound of king crab legs and a 22-ounce bone-in ribeye.
Both were perfection! We also shared the stuffed hot peppers for an appetizer and the classic creme brulee for dessert. What a great meal!
Then it was off to the concert. This was honestly one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Vince Gill and Deacon Frey (Glenn Frey’s son) did an incredible job filling Glenn Frey’s shoes.
The hometown crowd loved all the Joe Walsh numbers, of course. The Eagles played two and a half hours of solid music and sounded incredible!
But for me, the best part of the evening was the chance to connect with my dad. We share an appreciation for classic rock (and a good steak), but we don’t often get the chance to do things just the two of us. So the evening was really special and not just because the concert was so great!
Boo at the Zoo
From trick or treating…
…to a dance party…
…to the awesome new decorations, we love the classic Boo at the Zoo fun and there’s always something new to discover each year, too.
There’s still one weekend of Boo at the Zoo, happening Friday, October 26 through Sunday, October 28. You can purchase tickets online.
So, that was our fun, fall, festive weekend! How was yours?
