The hot, lazy days of summer have started to give way to the cool, crisp fall mornings. But don’t despair! Cleveland maintains a vibrant calendar of events regardless of the color of the tree leaves. This month, we have chosen to highlight two popular annual events in Northeast Ohio:

Woollybear Festival
October 15, 2006

The annual Woollybear Festival, the largest one-day festival in the state, is a cherished event among Ohioans. Held in the picturesque town of Vermillion on the shores of Lake Erie, the festival celebrates the beloved “Woolly Bear”, a fuzzy caterpillar with black on both ends and a reddish-brown colored middle. According to folklore, the longer the black bands, the more severe the coming winter. While science has debunked this theory, that doesn’t stop Ohioans from celebrating the furry critters’ weather forecaster prowess with a festival. The event includes not only a festival, but a 2-hour parade featuring over 20 marching bands, parade floats, Fox 8 meteorologist Dick Goddard and the rest of the Fox 8 News Team, and various other participants. Come and check out this “typical Ohio” festival and learn what kind of winter Mother Nature has in store for us!


Boo at the Zoo
October 19-22 and 26-29, 2006

Join fellow ghouls and goblins at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s annual Boo at the Zoo Halloween adventure. Touted as “8 Nights of SPOOKtacular Fun”, this wildly popular event ranks high on the fun meter of many local area children. Boo at the Zoo provides great family fun in a safe Halloween venue and this year is promising to be the best yet. Children of all ages will delight in the various animal exhibits, the “Creepy Crawly Critter Live Animal Show, the Halloween Hay Maze, and the Jack-o-Lantern Express train ride. Don’t forget to wear your costume!
