Things to Do in Austin in October

It's finally October and everyone already has Halloween on the mind, but there's plenty to do in the meantime! Oktoberfest is back in multiple places, and the long-awaited two weekend-long ACL Music Festival kicks off Friday, October 6th in Zilker Park. Catch the cult classic Hocus Pocus at Community First! Village or other frightfully fun films at the Austin Film Festival. At the end of the month, take a walk along the Bastrop Trick or Treat Trail, or treat yourself to a fireworks show presented by Planet K. There's something for everyone this month - you're sure to have a ghoulishly good time!
