3 fun things


The Sleepy Hollow Experience

Along with the chill in the air, the actors at Serenbe Playhouse want to send more shivers up your spine. For the third year in a row, they’re putting on a production of “Sleepy Hollow,” but with a few unusual twists. The play still contains the likes of Ichabod Crane and the object of his affection, Katrina. However, you won’t hear the story in a theater, but rather from storytellers as they guide you through open fields, a tired old town and a covered bridge that are all part of Serenbe’s rolling fields. Be warned: The Headless Horseman also will be roaming the grounds through Nov. 1.

8 and 10:30 p.m. Oct. 2 and 3; 8 p.m Oct. 4. $25. Serenbe Playhouse, 9110 Selborne Lane, Chattahoochee Hills. 770-463-1110, serenbeplayhouse.com.

Pumpkin Fest

October brings a celebration of pumpkin season to 80-acre Pettit Creek Farms. Start by checking out the plentiful pumpkin patch and picking out the perfect gourd. Then, try not to get lost in the corn maze. Let the kids tumble on inflatables before saddling up for a pony or camel ride. Climb into a cart for a hayride. The farm also features an exotic petting zoo with animals from South America and Africa. Concessions are available on weekends, and dogs on leashes are welcome.
