Things To Do in Boston this Weekend: Topsfield Fair, Pumpkinfest, Fun Runs

Why wait until the end of the month to show off those costumes? Kids of all ages are encouraged to don some festive garb at the "Be Our Guest" event at Hammond Castle and the Not-So-Spooky Halloween at Edaville. Fall festival fun continues with the opening of the Topsfield Fair, October Festival at Winslow Farm, Columbus Park Fall Fest, and one dedicated to everyone's favorite seasonal gourd, Pumpkinfest. Want to get some exercise and enjoy the autumn air? Lace up some sneakers and head to the Apple Harvest Run and Boston's newest 5k, the Sci-k Fun Run.
