Are you and your family coming to Hilton Head Island in October for your vacation? If the answer is yes, then you are in luck as there are several fun events happening on Hilton Head Island. Staying in one of our Hilton Head Island vacation rentals will keep your family close to where the fun is at. Let’s look below at a few of the fun events that will be taking place during the month of October.
Hilton Head’s Annual Chili Cookoff
There is something about the crisp morning air in the fall months that makes you want to head to the beach. But that smelling that crisp salty air isn’t the only thing that you will smell. You may get a good whiff of the 34th Annual Hilton Head Chili Cookoff that will be happening on October 6th. This event is put on by the Kiwanis Clubs of Hilton Head Island. All the proceeds will go to many local charities and help the youth too. You will need to purchase your tickets to attend but it’s well worth the money. There will be plenty of things for the family to do like chili tasting, face-painting and games. This is one delicious event that you won’t want to miss!
Annual Pumpkin Patch Festival
What’s fall without taking the family to the pumpkin patch? Hilton Head Island is hosting their Annual Pumpkin Patch Festival to help celebrate Halloween. There will be plenty of things for the family to do including carnival games, inflatables, a fun petting zoo and more. Plus, let your kids dress in their Halloween costumes as there will be a costume contest too. This event will happen on Saturday, October 18th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm over at the Shelter Cove Community Park. Come and help celebrate the fall and Halloween all in one fun event!
10th Annual Italian Heritage Festival
