Delray Beach Events
October 2013

Delray Beach Events: October is the month that we slowly transition back into a busy tourist season with lots of events starting up this month.

We have lots of
free weekend things to do like the Free Friday Night Concerts at the outdoor Pavilion at Old School Square, Thirsty Thursday's Art Walk  and Music Fest -- these last two are at the new Marketplace on West Atlantic Avenue.

We have two signature events this month! 

On Oct 17th, it's On The Ave in Pineapple Grove Arts District and on Oct 19th, we have the opening day for the, Delray Green Market! The Green Market is celebrating it's 18th season!

And let's not forget October also means we transition into Fall and this means...Halloween is just around corner!

We have some wicked fun with ghost tours, zombie crawls and haunted houses! Purchase discount tickets now!

We have two nearby pumpkin patches, hay rides, corn mazes, with a petting zoo, and more!

And there's Halloween Fun with Trick-or-Treating downtown, a parade ending with a Family Fun Fest at Veteran's Park, and Delray Beach Historical Society is offering a free outdoor movie: It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!
