Glass City’s Favorite Fall Fun

The first hints of fall begin to arrive in Toledo in the last weeks of September and early October. Depending on the year and the current weather conditions, the peak Ohio fall colors show up around mid or late October.

Toledo boasts an extensive Metroparks system, which means that there are dozens of interconnected trails that will allow you to hike and bike through the canopy of the fall leaves.

Toledo Mud Hens Game

While the Mud Hens delight the crowds at Fifth Third Field during the spring and summer months, you won’t want to miss out on the chance to watch one of their last games of the season in September.

Pick a Pumpkin

Fleitz Pumpkin Farm is the best place to go in order to experience the best that fall has to offer.  It is a tradition for many Toledo locals to head to the farm each October in order to pick a pumpkin and make memories together.

Experience the Night of the Living Dead

If you are the type of person who likes your fall season to include plenty of thrills and chills, then consider participating in the Adams Street Zombie Crawl.
