With the month of October quickly approaching we all start thinking about all things fall including those fun fall festivals.

How about enjoying a fall festival at the zoo for free?

That's what Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago is offering.

DNAInfo shares that Lincoln Park Zoo will be offering a free Fall Festival within the zoo for the first three weekends in October.

This free fest "will offer a ton of kid-friendly activities, including a corn maze, hay mountain and a 60-foot burlap sack slide on the zoo's Main Mall.

There will be a pumpkin carver on hand, as well as a Ferris wheel, inflatable courses and rides for kids to enjoy. Festival goers can also expect educational activities and live entertainment."

Now while the festival itself is free and open to the public, be aware that the rides aren't. According to the DNAInfo article the costs are $3 for one ride, $27 for 10 rides or $51 for 20 rides.

How fun does that sound?! Heck I don't have kids and I'd go.
