Five events to go to this October if you’re not a fan of Halloween

Five events to go to this October if you’re not a fan of Halloween

An LBGTQ-themed comic con, a music fest for our farmers, a museum open house, and more.

The spooky season is upon us. Have you planned your Halloween costume yet? We can already foresee so many barkadas dressed in red jumpsuits à la  Money Heist, couples clad in the quintessential Joker-Harley Quinn tandem, and some, who might go all out and do a Van Gogh costume, complete with an intricate painting somewhere in the mix. Nothing’s stopping you from doing anything this month, or any other month, for that matter. Go ahead and get your freak out.

But just in case you’re one of those who don’t really see the point in dressing up for Halloween, we rounded up some non-spooky events that you might be interested in.

Komiket (Oct. 12-13)

There’s nothing like spending your weekend some good old comics made by your favorite local artists, am I right? This month, Komiket is back with over 500 comic creators, illustrators, and artists, and what’s more is that it puts focus on queer representation in the comic world.
