Sep 23, 2020 September 23, 2020

It’s that time of year again, when orange skies fill the air and pumpkin spice lattes fill your coffee mug.

October in Miami is great time to experience the outdoors and get in some nature walks to recharge the senses without breaking much of a sweat - not to mention have some fun!

So, for things to do in Miami this month, we’ve got a mixed goodie bag of online and on-ground events to help you have some Halloween fun. (We highly recommend double checking the availability of the on-ground events before heading out.) There’s also a virtual run, online jazz series, boat show, and carnival to keep you in the highest of fall spirits. Look below for the complete list of virtual and on-ground events to spice up your October in the Magic City:
