Things to Do in Austin in October

Before we know it, Halloween will be here! Before then, Austin has tons of tricks and treats up its sleeve. The Austin City Limits Music Festival is back on the 5th for two weekends in a row, and Formula 1 makes its return on the 19th. Find your perfect pumpkin floating in a pool in Pflugerville on the 13th, and end the month watching fireworks light up the sky at Krieg Baseball Field.
