Pumpkins, hauntings, corn, pumpkins... Get all your fall festival needs fulfulled in one place.
The Autumn Glory Festival, Oct. 10-14, is located near Oakland on the Maryland panhandle. During these four days, you can take a crack at a corn maze adventure, or go ahead and team up to enter the Great Pumpkin Festival, where numbered pumpkins are released into the rapids.
You'll also find pumpkin chucking, a carving contest, a greased pumpkin relay, an antique show, a farmers' market, and (somehow), dogsledding. A fall foliage driving tour peaks in mid-October, with the options of either a 20-mile or a 55-mile tour.
Perhaps most importantly, there is a haunted mountain coaster. Yes, you read that correctly. Wisp's already-popular mountain coaster gets a scary makeover in October.
