October is one of my favorite months of the year in Lehigh Valley. And it’s not just one thing that makes it so great. I love October because it’s my birthday month, there's an incredible display of leaves changing with the weather, and Halloween ... there’s just something about being scared that puts a smile (or should I say scream) on my face.

With Dorney Park's Halloween Haunt already checked off my list, here’s the rest of things that I still would like to do this month:

1. Play a round of haunted mini golf at Dorney Square in Allentown. FYI, watch out from below!

2. Go check out one of Lehigh Valley’s newest haunted attractions: The Devil's Folly Haunted Barn. I even get in free because my birthday is this month! Have you been there yet? It sounds like a blast.    

3. Go Mutsu apple picking at Strawberry Acresin Coplay. These apples make for some awesome pies.

4. Head to Emeril’s Chop House at Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem for an awesome birthday dinner! Yum, I can taste it already.

5. Sneak in one last round of golf at Allentown Municipal Golf Course, one of my local favorites.

6. Check out Saw VI, which comes out October 23, at Rave Motion Pictures Promenade 16 in Center Valley. I’ve not been to this theater yet, but I hear it's sweet!

Are there any other October activities in Lehigh Valley that I should check out?
