Fall is here and those looking to get into the spirit of the season need look no further for fun October weekend activities.

Sure, COVID-19 concerns has resulted in many events being cancelled, but not all the fall fun has been scrapped. Many event organizers have adapted to the changing times and are operating under local and CDC guidelines and mandates.

So, while there won't be as many haunted house attractions this year, the zombies and creepy clowns are out there, and you can still make your annual fall pilgrimage to Southern New Mexico and pick your own pumpkins.

If you're ready to mask up and venture out while keeping your distance, here are the seasonal activities the weekend has to offer.
