Five fun festivities to enjoy over fall break

     With the start of fall break, students may be wondering what they should do to stay out of the house. Many traditional attractions in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area will still be open but with strict guidelines to ensure safety in the midst of the COVD-19 pandemic. For students hoping to have a fun time, below are some fun and exciting festivities to try during this year’s fall break.

  1. Hallzooween is an annual spin on the normal atmosphere at the Cincinnati Zoo with activities including Boo-In-A-Bag, Hide-and-Seek Fiona, the Annual Pumpkin Pandemonium, and the Spooktacular Hogwarts Express. Due to CDC regulations, reservations are required before arriving at the zoo.
  2. The Dent Schoolhouse will give you the chills upon arrival. Walking the hallways can be scary enough, but can you imagine it with killer clowns ready to jump out at you? This will be one lesson you will never forget! Masks are required on the property at all times and all actors will be wearing masks. The Dent Schoolhouse is located in an abandoned school on Harrison Avenue in Cincinnati, Ohio. No tickets will be sold at the door so all tickets must be bought online.
  3. If you are looking for something to save money but still enjoy your time, head over to Neltner’s Farm in Melbourne, Kentucky. On weekends, guests ages three & up are $5 and on weekdays they are free. All activities that they have annually will still happen, except for face painting, live music, and the kids’ corn play pit. Pick your pumpkins to carve and steer your way out of the maze this fall break at Neltner’s Farm.
  4. Fall into the floral show “Plum Gorgeous” at the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati, Ohio. Enjoy the vibrant shades of purple at this show and observe the many plants this show has to offer whilst being able to buy some plants in the gift shop.
  5. If you aren’t looking to open up your wallet you can enjoy hikes, family picnics, and walking your dog while breathing in the nice, cool fall air. Visit some of the various parks around our area including, Highland, Tower, and Rossford Park.

     After looking at those five ideas, many more might have popped into your head! Use this extended weekend to get out of the house and enjoy the fall spirit Bluebirds!
