October In Cleveland
by C. Holan
The Indians are in the World Series, so if you’re a baseball fan now is a great time to go to a game! Although baseball is ending, football season has officially started! Sadly, but not surprisingly, the Browns are off to a poor start with six losses in a row. Even though the Browns have not won yet, football games are still always a fun time!
If you aren’t a fan of watching sports, don’t worry. There are lots of upcoming concerts and performing arts events this month as well. Several concerts are happening at House of Blues, including the alternative band Saint Motel and many more. If you prefer a calmer atmosphere the Cleveland Orchestra preforms at Severance Hall several times throughout the month, which is always a good time. Along with music, you can go see a play at Playhouse Square! In the upcoming winter months, you can look forward to many festive plays. During October, highlights include Twelfth Night, a Shakespeare classic that freshman at HB enjoy reading every year, and Finding Neverland, a spin on Peter Pan.
Many other fun fall activities are going on throughout the month in the spirit of Halloween, so make you so visit some of these places before it gets too chilly. Even though it’s not in Cleveland, Cedar Point’s Halloweekends are a popular attraction only 1-2 hours west in Sandusky. If you love thrills and scares, then October is a good month to visit haunted houses. Some popular ones are Seven Floors and Carnival of Horrors. If haunted houses aren’t for you, maybe a visit to Patterson Fruit Farm in Chesterland would be something you’d enjoy.
No matter what you like to do, there is something fun for you during the month of October in Cleveland.
