Bozeman Maze
There are few Bozemanites around who don’t know about the Bozeman Maze. If it's news to you, you're welcome. Reach new heights on the bungee trampoline, go on a train ride, and of course, attempt to find your way through the massive hay maze. Arranged in a creative design, this maze will confuse the young and old alike, so brush up on your directional skills and get ready for an hour-long venture—getting out will not be easy. A smaller, simpler maze for the young’uns is also available. The maze runs weekends through October; more info can be found at bozemanmaze.com.

Rocky Creek Farm Fall Festival
No one does the fall like Rocky Creek Farm—their pumpkin patch provides an entire day of fun. Not only can you pick your own pumpkin, but the farm also offers hayrides, a petting zoo, And fresh apple cider. Oh yeah, and it’s free to make a reservation.

Downtown Trick-or-Treat
Bring the kiddos to downtown Bozeman on Halloween for safe, fun trick-or-treating from 4-6pm. Local businesses stay open to provide candy and games for kids. The kids can have fun and parents can relax knowing their children are safe. Just remember, Main Street will be open to regular vehicular traffic for this event. Trick-or-treaters should be on sidewalks and should utilize crosswalks and the help of volunteers in safety vests.
