Fall-O-Weekends include hands-on activities, food demonstrations, a scavenger hunt, a maze and food and drinks for purchase.

Entry is included with general admission, and guests can bring their own lawn chairs and blankets.

The event will take place from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays until Nov. 1.

A cocktail scavenger hunt for those 21 and older will take place from noon-2:30 p.m. on Oct. 18.
