Festive fall events

One of the most festive times of year has arrived! Middleton is home to fall events that are as colorful as the autumn leaves. Some fun events are on deck this month: browse the selection at a farmers’ market, lace up your shoes for a weekend race or take your little one to a Halloween happening. Here’s a look at what’s taking place this October.

Farmers’ markets

The final days of the outdoor farmers’ markets have arrived. It’s been a great growing season and our vendors are loaded with a cornucopia of fall produce. Select a carving pumpkin or a baking squash or pick some delicious vegetables for your fall table. Get to the market now: our Tuesday downtown market runs through October and the Thursday market at Greenway Station ends tomorrow, Oct. 4. Learn more about the markets.

Haunted Hustle

How fast can a pumpkin run? Find out at the Haunted Hustle races. The annual costume-themed race takes place Oct. 20-21 at Middleton’s Keva Sports Center. Saturday’s events include a kids’ race, 5K, and 5K Stroller Derby along with a great post-race bonfire, s’mores and live music. Sunday morning racers put their training to the test with the 10K and a challenging half marathon (13.1 miles), ending the weekend with the Haunted Hustle Finish Festival.

Downtown Trick or Treat

Ghosts and goblins will descend on downtown Middleton for this annual fall event. Kids don their costumes and circulate through businesses in our charming downtown. There are more than 30 participating businesses including restaurants and retailers— look for a pumpkin on the door to know if there are treats inside. The event takes place from 11am-2pm on October 26.
