This is when things start to get spooky. Those owl hoots, full moons and old houses just seem so much creepier in October. You’re not sure if those shivers are coming from the chilly autumn air or that ghostly gut feeling. For the festivalgoer who howls for the haunted and doesn’t mind the company of ghouls and goblins, October is golden. Being the month of Halloween, many festivals in October, such as the New York City Village Halloween Parade, play off those vampire vibes. Not to scare you away from festivals this month or anything. October is also the month of many non-scary festivals. For example, the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin, Texas, is in motion and the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is taking flight.
