Things To Do with Kids in New Jersey this Weekend, October 13-14, 2018

All aboard trains, planes, and automobiles on this super-busy mid-October weekend! Hop on a Pumpkin Train in Flemington, or take a nighttime Haunted Express through Allaire State Park if you're up for something a little spookier. Little ones will love riding through Storybook Land on a fright-free Happy Hayride. Opportunities for all kinds of vehicle exploration this weekend include fire trucks, planes, and police cars.

Crisp fall weather is on its way (we hear), so advantage of the cooler temps at outdoor celebrations, including Ringwood's Harvest Fest, South Jersey Pumpkin Show Festival, Sussex County Harvest, Honey and Garlic Festival, and Thompson Park Day. Hang out at theme parks in all their fall glory at events like Diggerland's Diggerfest and Six Flags Great Adventure's Fright Fest
