1. You don’t need a special event to get into the spirit of the spooky season. Here are some ongoing activities perfect for the Halloween lead-up: A hike at Prince William Forest Park, where you might happen upon old, small family grave sites; a stroll through Congressional Cemetery; a visit to the National Museum of Health & Medicine (best for older kids); a tour of Ford’s Theatre.
2. The Capital Art & Craft Festival is coming to Northern Virginia this weekend, October 15-17, and will feature art in more than a dozen mediums — jewelry, paintings, prints, glass, leather, photography, pottery, wearable art, and wood, and more. (Think early holiday shopping!) Even better, I’ve got five pairs of entry tickets ($24 value) to give away. If you want a chance to win one of them, simply leave a comment below by noon (12pm) on Thursday, October 14. Admission to the festival is free for kids age 12 and under.
