This week is our last full week before Halloween, so of course we’ve got outdoor activities that revolve around the spookiest day of the year. Carve those pumpkins before it gets weird once November rolls around.

Nike Run Club in Georgetown
Peer pressure yourself into running faster by joining Nike’s run club at the very specific time of 6:34 p.m. at the Nike shop in Georgetown for a cool 70 minute run.
Head to Storey Park on Wednesday from 5 – 8 p.m. for some pumpkin carving, live bluegrass and terrarium building lessons. As someone who failed miserably at terrarium crafting in the past, I can tell you lessons are well worth it.
If you ain’t afraid of no ghosts, then head to Adams Morgan for a screening of the most classic ghost film of all time (it’s not up for debate) and a costume contest. Bonus points from me if you go as the Stay Puffed guy.
Friday night the Smithsonian Zoo is closing its gates to the kids and letting the adults run wild. There will be beer, live music, costume contests and a chance to wander freely without the fear of losing your kids.
Fall is the only time of year when apples are guaranteed not to be mealy and flavorless, so take advantage of the crispness that is happening right now and head to Adams Morgan’s Apple festival. There will be apple pie contests, and heirloom apple tasting. Who knew heirloom apples existed?
Corgis are cute. The queen of England loves them. Sunday from 11-1 Annapolis will have a ton of dressed up in all sorts of costumes which makes them even better. There’s no way you can have a bad day after seeing a bunch of corgis dressed as hotdogs.
Go forth into nature!
