1. If you have kids, then perhaps you love the days of pumpkinshaped cookies, Halloween crafts and buying face paint by the pallet. Another perk? Bear Creek Park’s annual Pumpkin Express. The family-friendly train opens to the public Friday (Oct. 10) for its 18th Halloween season. Kids will have the chance to make a pumpkin headband, play Halloween-themed games, get a treat and take home a petite pumpkin of their own. The Pumpkin Express opens at 10 a.m. and runs until 4:30 p.m. Tickets to ride the train are $9.50 each, for both adults and children.

Hours for the temporary pop-up shop are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday to Wednesday, until 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. Happy shopping!
