October is not only known for food fests and Oktoberfest, it also is the spooky time when California folks celebration ghosts. In addition, butterflies, pumpkins, lemons and avocado treats are all celebrated in this harvest season. California is home to some of the top crop production with many fruits, vegetables and edibles shipped around the globe.  California Fairs and Festivals in October bring the farmers and rural agricultural communities out to celebrate harvests of pumpkins, almonds, tomatoes, apples, and all sorts of delicious fruits and vegetables.  Corn mazes are a specialty of these fantastic destinations, and the size of them can be massive, taking up to an hour to find your way out of. Ghost haunts, trick or treats, Oktoberfest, Chili Cook-off, festivals celebrating avocados, yo-yos, scarecrows and apples are just a few of the imaginative events Californians and vacationers can participate in. While these events are merely a sampling of what's happening, they at least give you some ideas to plan for and enjoy.
