Those looking for fun, spooky, and socially-distanced ways to get into the spirit of the season this weekend need look no further.

Ongoing COVID-19 concerns has resulted in many events being cancelled, but not all the fall fun has been sucked out of October. Numerous event organizers have adapted to the world we're living in and are operating under local and CDC guidelines and mandates, including limiting the number of people and requiring face coverings.

So, while there aren't as many attractions and activities this year, if you're ready to mask up and venture out while keeping your distance, here are some seasonal activities this weekend has to offer.
