2021 Fall Events Guide

Oct 04, 2021
Share
 

Fall 2020 was all about COVID-19, murder hornets, zombie hurricanes and historic wildfires.

 

Why should we be surprised that we’re now looking at Fall 2021: The Sequel. COVID is still with us, a lot like the Mad Titan, Thanos, was the ultimate bad guy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies. The historic wildfires are still with us out west and murder hornets have been replaced by supply chain breakdown.

 

In the midst of the madness, we’re pulling together our annual Fall Events Guide. All of these events were still on schedule when we sent the Moore Monthly to print in late September. Frankly, you’ll want to double-check before attending any of the events listed in this year’s guide.

 

We can tell you this for certain: Moore’s Red Ribbon Parade has been cancelled again this year.

But as of the day we went to print in late September, Haunt Old Town is still a go for Saturday, October 30. And once again, all the rumors about Halloween are just rumors. October 31st is the official day for Halloween again this year. Yes. That is on Sunday this year.

 

With all these things in mind, we present to you a somewhat limited guide to events throughout the area through the end of the year. But even as we offer this guide to you, we are tapping you on the shoulder and reminding you, “These things may change!”
