Seven ways to fall for Fall

When the weather cools off, we know how to have fun here in Round Rock. And what’s more fun than dressing in a silly costume — or, better yet, dressing the kids in cute costumes? Or playing with toys — really, really BIG toys?

So get your Fall fun on at one (or more!) of the following:

1. Hometown Halloween
