Spooky season is almost here! The leaves are falling, the air is (occasionally) crisp and all we can think about is bonfires, football games and sweater weather. There’s nothing like a fall festival or classic Halloween movie to get that cozy, autumn feeling, and we’ve got both on our list this month – plus even more fun events around town to try this October.

October 1

Coffee with a Cop at Marysville Starbucks
Meet some of the brave men and women serving the community on Marysville’s police force. There will be pizza and treats, and of course, Starbucks coffee!
