The weather forecast this weekend looks great for fall activities.  Late October and mostly sunny with highs in the 60’s?  This won’t last for long!   If you’re looking to get out and about and find something to do this weekend, there are some fun & inexpensive activities going on in Milwaukee.

Boo at the Zoo

Boo at the Zoo takes place on Friday and Saturday evening at the Milwaukee County Zoo.  The Zoo is decked out in Halloween decorations with family friendly Halloween displays and  hundreds of carved pumpkins.  Check out the “haunted” train ride and the Halloween hay stack maze.  If you can’t make it to Boo at the Zoo, the Halloween Trick-or-Treat Spooktacular takes place at the Zoo next weekend.

Star Wars at Discovery World

Meet Darth Vadar, Storm Troopers, Chewbacca, and lots of other Star Wars characters on Saturday at Discovery World.  Admission to the Star Wars event is free with your Discovery World admission and you can save $5 off the admission to Discovery World by using the Discovery World coupon on our Milwaukee Coupons page.

Fright Fest at Great America

Fright Fest runs every Friday through Sunday for the rest of October at Great America.  If you have never been to Fright Fest, it is a lot of fun.  You can get discount Fright Fest tickets by purchasing online in advance.  If you want until you get to the park to buy your tickets, you’ll pay full price.

World Series?  eh.

Of course, you could stay at home and watch the World Series.  Who cares about that anyway? 😉

If you’re a bargain hunter, don’t forget about Rummage-A-Rama, which starts this weekend at State Fair Park.  This weekend also looks perfect to go to a Milwaukee pumpkin farm if you haven’t done so already.

What are your weekend plans?
