    Now that it’s finally starting to feel like autumn in northern Westchester, it’s time to button up those cozy flannels and head out to some of our favorite fall destinations.

    Lasdon Park & Arboretum in Katonah is hosting a Fall Festival & Train Show Saturdays and Sundays through the end of October. Head to this Westchester County park to enjoy not only the train show, but also the new conservatory, a hay maze, a fairy garden room, the Veterans Museum, and lots of special activities, like beer and wine tastings, face painting, live music, and food.

    The Fox Lane Players are hosting The Haunted Asylum, a haunted house for all ages (“not-so-scary” version available upon request). Take the family to Fox Lane High School in Bedford on Friday, October 20 (3-9 pm), Saturday, October 21 (1-9 pm), and Sunday, October 22 (a1-3 pm) for the fright of your life!

    Outhouse Orchards in North Salem is the perfect destination for fall family fun: apple picking, pumpkin picking, shopping for fresh, local produce, house-baked pies and pumpkin cheesecakes plus honey and maple syrup. Don’t miss the corn maze and hayrides!

    Katonah Village Improvement Society will host the 2017 Halloween Parade on Sunday, October 29. Come in costume and meet in front of Tazza Café on Katonah and enjoy cider, donuts, and live music by Abby & the Roadsters! Bring your costumed pooch for the Doggie Ragamuffin Parade, too.

    Bring your little ones to Caramoor for Spooky Tales, a riveting storytelling performance celebrating Halloween with master storyteller Jonathan Kruk. Hear spooky but not-too-scary tales and join in on the telling with guided audience participation. Following the performance, a special child-friendly brew and other ghostly treats will be served in the summer dining room. Come in costume! Prizes given to all! Ages 3–8. Monday, October 30 at 3:30 pm.

    The Pound Ridge Business Association welcomes “wee ghosties and goblins” to Scotts Corners on Tuesday, October 31, for the 18th annual Halloween Walk, including trick or treating at local shops (4-6 pm) followed by cider, donuts, and a haunted house at the Pound Ridge Fire Department (6-8 pm).
