The Quad Cities shows its spooky side in October with pumpkin events, haunted houses, museum exhibits, and a Strongman Competition.
** Spooky, Scary Events in October
It’s going to be a spooky, scary October in the Quad Cities! There are plenty of places and events to put you in the Halloween spirit with road races, parades, costume contests, kid’s activities, theatre, and ghost stories.
** New Fall Museum Exhibits
The museums in the Quad Cities have cool, new exhibits this fall to entice you indoors as the weather turns cooler. Check out the Family Museum, Putnam Museum and Science Center, German American Heritage Center, and Figge Art Museum.
** Visiting the Pumpkin Patch
It’s finally feeling a little like autumn in the Quad Cities area, and with the cooling temperatures come some of my favorite activities of the year. But one of our favorite family traditions is visiting the pumpkin patch.

Over 200 athletes from across North America, both men and women, arrive in the Quad Cities on October 2-3 to compete for the National Title at this year’s North American Strongman National Championships. This is the first time the Championships have been held in the Quad Cities.
