Some fall weekend fun for the family:
Graf Growers Garden Center will offer pumpkin painting on weekends during October. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. You buy the pumpkin; Graf's will supply the paint and clean up the mess.
There's also a tractor play area with a real tractor for kids to climb on. (Think photo op.)
The activities are free and under cover, so come rain or shine. Graf Growers is at 1015 White Pond Drive in Akron, just off I-77.
