Fall has just arrived and soon the leaves will start to turn and the weather will cool off a bit and it will be time for sweaters and jackets. So what is there to do in San Antonio in the fall? SO MUCH. There are so many festivals and events happening in San Antonio over the fall months that you won’t be able to fit them all in. We’ve lined up just a few of them to give you a glimpse at what your fall season is going to look like.

You might think you know what to expect but this year will be even bigger. Every day until 5 is Thrills By Day which is family-friendly and includes live shows and the Looney Tunes Twick or Tweat Twail. But once the clock strikes 5, all bets are off and the ghouls come out to haunt. With 13 terrifying haunted attractions, 4 live musical shows, 5 haunted houses and 4 scare zones. You won’t be able to escape from the terror! For 2015, there will be 4 new exciting haunted attractions to scare the pants off of you.

In addition, they also put on the yearly Oktoberfest! With authentic German food, beer and entertainment, it’s easy to get involved and forget you’re in San Antonio! Entry to the festival is a $5 donation or $3 if you get it through presale. You’ll love the real German food and you’ll definitely enjoy listening to the real German bands that will be serenading you both weekends. The Beethoven Maennerchor’s Oktoberfest will take place October 2-3 and 9-10. The Beethoven Maennerchor Halle is located only 20 minutes away from our home at the Residences at La Cantera.
