Last week's rain event resulted in lots of canceled activities as families were driven indoors. And while there might be scattered rain in this weekend's forecast, there will also be sunshine. So grab your sunglasses and the kids and head out to enjoy October. We've picked 4 fairs and festivals as well as 2 running events to suggest for outdoor family fun. But pack the umbrella, just in case!
