Time for another weekend here in Kansas City!!! Here are some ideas on what you can do this weekend!

First thing is first — have you noticed how GORGEOUS the foliage is? My husband and I were talking about how this is the most brilliant it has been around here in years! So, try to get outside and enjoy it before all of those colors are scattered on the ground! Here is a list of some great parks you can go to and walk some trails:

Burr Oak Woods (North of Blue Springs)
James A Reed Memorial Wildlife Area (Lee’s Summit)
Johnson County Parks

Here are a few other things you can do as well:

Lowe’s Stores

Bring the kids in their costumes and get ready to trick or treat at the zoo. The kids can enjoy the Boneville Graveyard, watch “spooky” animal shows and even get his/her photo taken.

Don’t forget to check out your area pumpkin patches this weekend too! There are still plenty of pumpkins for you to find the perfect one to carve into something spooktacular! Plus, the pumpkin patch is a great place to spend the day with the family to enjoy some fresh air before winter settles in.

There are so many local trick or treating events around the city that I could just go on and on here. Check out your local Borders store to see if they are particiapting. You can also contact some of the churches in your area as many of them hold “trunk or treat” events this weekend as well.

Whatever you decide to do, just have fun and do it as a family! So, what are your plans? Share with us!
