End October With These CNY Events

As October comes to and end, check out the CNY events that will most certainly fill your weekend.

Hey, October. It’s been fun, but you’re coming to a close. Old Man Winter is driving into town, and it’s time to make the best of his visit is by keeping busy with countless CNY events to warm hearts (and bodies). What will keep you positive this weekend includes a Harry Potter-themed weekend in Ithaca, a zombie ball, a classic film festival, historical hauntings and investigations, music and last minute haunted attraction visits.

Cue the snow! Cue the pictures (and panic) via social media! And cute the Taylor Swift. Snow visits every year like an unwanted relative, so shake it off.

For Kids (& Kids at Heart)
