One Direction from London England is the headline group for the night.  The popular pop rock boy band is one of 2014′s hottest music acts.  Lorde from New Zealand continues with rock concerts around the world.  Iggy Azalea brings hip hop, rap,  and EDM to the nights stage.

Calvin Harris is best know for electro house and dance pop type music.  The Scottish entertainer is also the highest paid DJ in the world for his music mixes.  Eric Church gets us back to country music and Ed Sheeran brings folk music to the night.  The groups Train and Paramore also play Saturday night.

There are some other ways to hear the festivals music.  The iHeartRadio stations across the country will broadcast the event live.  The CW TV stations will also carry the night concerts live.  There is also an app available that allows you to hear the music all year long.

Tickets are still available for the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village.

Performing live September 20th on Saturday afternoon shows in the festival village are Iggy Azalea, Neon Trees, Kacy Musgraves, Childish Gambino, Magic, The Pretty Reckless, Nico & Vinz, and Lil Jon.

Win iHeartRadio Music Festival Tickets:

A number of partners and sponsors of iHeartRadio are having contests for tickets.  Check out the iHeartRadio page for information.

As a veteran of Las Vegas visits I can tell you that various casinos always find tickets for their high roller customers.  If you have a casino host you should contact your host immediately.  As they are arranging your September visit it would be a good time to have them get you these hard to get tickets.  Just my suggestion.

The entire event takes place at the MGM Garden Arena located at 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas.  The mammoth arena seats 16,000 people plus the arena floor.  It is best known for professional boxing matches with Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather, Oscar De La Hoya and many more.  It also has hosted WCW wrestling, Ultimate Fighting Championships, and the Billboard Music Awards show.

Here at Funtober we continue to bring you events and fun things to do as we countdown to Halloween.  We are at Day 96 of our countdown.  Check out our blog at Funtober.

Chicago plays host to a second horror attraction by famed horror filmmaker, rock legend, and entertainment genius Rob Zombie.  Last month Funtober reported the opening of Rob Zombie’s haunted house in Phoenix on September 19th.  Rob Zombie and partners Steve Kopelman and Andy Gould are opening a second haunted house this year in Villa Park, Illinois,  a Chicago suburb.

Rob Zombie will perform live on September 26, 2014 at the opening of his Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare – Chicago.  The venue is the Odeum Expo located at 1033 North Villa Avenue in Villa Park, IL.  Expect to see spectacular light theatrics, animatronic robots, huge LED screens, a collection of psychotronic film clips, pyrotechnics, and amazing guitar performances.

Friday and Saturday the haunt runs from 7:00 pm to 12:00 am.  All other nights until 10:00 pm.  Tickets for the Chicago event are $25.  Opening night features Rob Zombie’s performance so tickets and haunt attraction are $45.

Three terrific haunted houses named The Lord of Salem in Total Black Out, Haunt of 1,000 Corpses, and The Haunted World of El Superbeasto are all takeoffs from his wildly successful horror films.  You just have to love a guy that really gets into his work.  He brings a sick, disturbing, bloody, three-dimensional horror that includes a sick demented laughter to his projects.

Rob Zombie has sold over 15 million albums and performs concerts all over the world.  He also has written and directed six horror feature Hollywood films.  He has worked with Andy Gould for over 20 years.  Gould produces most of Rob’s music, film, and entertainment ventures.  He has worked with other entertainment acts such as White Zombie, Linkin Park, and Guns N’ Roses.  Steve Kopelman has produced some of the largest haunted houses in the country.  He has produced more and bigger attractions than anyone all across the country.  A true legend in the haunted house industry.

We are starting to get close to Halloween.  Today is Day 97 on our Fun Things To Do As We Countdown To Halloween blog series.  Lots more festivals, Oktoberfest, and haunted house articles to come before Halloween so keep checking back.  We also are starting a series of articles on food recipes for this fall.  We have invited some great guest bloggers in the food world to write for us.

Does it rain near you?  Of course, it rains in the fall which makes going to a fall festival, a corn maze, or pumpkin patch in October a little questionable on rainy days.  Even sitting in a pouring rain in September at Ohio Stadium watching my beloved OSU Buckeyes is not my favorite fall activity.  So here is a suggestion to expand your cultural interests.  Visit a free art museum in your area.  Now do not get me wrong, I am talking about visiting some of the best art museums in the world which just happen to have “free admission” days or “pay what you want” days.

Now I am not someone who knows about the art of the European masters.  I can barely recognize Andy Warhol’s works.  But I have visited a number of museums in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Detroit and found works of art that I never knew existed.  It isn’t just art, but national treasures, ancient history, and works passed down through the ages that make art so rare, expensive, and inspiring.

Target Corporation has both free and reduced price museum admission events.  The dates and detail vary by museums so visit their website for details.  Just because they had a little problem with their credit card security last fall does not mean they are not trying to support their local communities.  My brother worked for Target for 25 years.

National Endowment for the Arts offers free admission to 2000 participating Blue Star Museums across America.  Blue Star Museums offer free admission to active duty military service personnel and their families up through Labor Day.  The family can visit free even if the actual active member is not with them.  See the details at the website.

Apple recently announced their 8th annual ITunes Festival will be held at the legendary Roundhouse in London, UK from September 1st through September 30th, 2014.  They will feature over 60 artists typically pairing an up and coming star each night with a legendary performer.

While a great live concert the real news is it is streamed live to apple devices around the world so millions can purchase online and watch live.  Here on the east coast of the United States the concerts will be broadcast with the opening acts around 2:45 pm EST with the headline artists taking the stage at approximately 4:00 pm.  It will end each night around 5:30 pm.  (Note the live performances on London time are 7:45 pm to 10:30 pm.)

Clearly Apple is going to make millions off ITunes for this event.  I did not see the exact ticket cost details.

What did catch my eye was that the young boy group 5 Seconds of Summer is scheduled to perform live on Thursday, September 4, 2014.  I just watched them this morning as they appeared on the NBC Today show with Matt Lauer before a packed plaza audience.

Fans of the Today show can remember some of the memorable live performance on the small plaza stage.  No one has appeared who created the type of fan buzz as this 5 Seconds of Summer group.  You heard it here.  Justin Bieber and One Direction move over as a new group is winning the hearts of the 14 year old girl crowd.  Never have I seen so many teenage girls all screaming at one time.

Now I am old enough to remember the Beatles US landing back in the 60′s, the Rolling Stones, and lots of groups since then.  Never have I see a crowd react as they did today.

So anyway, ITunes announced a lineup with headliners Adam Levine and Maroon 5, Pharrell Williams, Blondie, Kylie, Robert Plant and more.

Here is the line up and dates announced so far.

Beck performs on Tuesday, September 2nd.
David Guetta performs on Wednesday, September 3rd.
5 Seconds of Summer takes the stage on September 4th.
Kasabian performs Friday, September 5th.
Galvin Harris takes the stage on Sunday, September 7th.
Robert Plant performs on Monday, September 8th.
Sam Smith sings on Tuesday, September 9th.
Pharrell Williams with Jungle performs September 10th.
Maroon 5 headlines the night of September 11th.
Blondie & Chrissie Hynde performs on September 16th.
Kylie announced for September 27th.

I have not seen details or announcements for other nights or performers.  Check out this video from the 2013 concert with Lady Gaga.

The Roundhouse was built in 1847 and used as a massive railroad repair shed.  It has undergone many transformations including an arts center in the 1960′s, a punk rock and pornography venue in the 1970′s and in complete disrepair for 20 years from the 1980′s.  However since the early 2000′s it has been remodeled as one of London’s best live event and fanciest theaters.

We continue at Funtober on our countdown to Halloween.  This is day 101.  Find more events such as this as we continue our search for more fun things to do this fall.  Do not miss any of our posts on the Funtober blog.

Image of roller coasters at HersheyPark in Hershey PA.

Hershey, Pennsylvania is a bustling little community of 14,000 people near the state capital of Harrisburg.  It is self described as “The Sweetest Place on Earth” in part because it is the headquarters town for the Hershey Chocolate Factory.  Hershey is just 14 miles from Harrisburg and 100 miles from Philadelphia.  The Hershey company makes 43% of all the chocolate sold in the USA.  If your looking for something to do this fall then this just might be the place for you.

I’ve visited Hershey a couple of times and it is a fascinating place.  The street lights resemble Hershey “Kisses” candy.  There are two exits for Hershey off the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  Each exit is about 10 miles from the attractions.  During Christmas they have one of the best and longest outdoor drive through lighted displays you will find anywhere in the country.

The area is absolutely amazing and worth the visit.  For such a small town it brings in world class entertainment year around especially in the fall.

Hershey Theme Park Attraction Remains Open This Fall

HersheyPark is a full amusement park with lots of rides, shows, and food for the whole family.  It features over 60 rides with about 12 roller coasters, over 25 kiddie rides, a water park and much more.  In the fall for Halloween they feature “The Dark” with roller ghosters, spooktacular attractions, and the Hershey Trick or Treat Adventure.  Friday nights in October are open from 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm.  Saturday’s they are open from 10:00 am until 10:00 pm.  Sunday’s they are open from 12:00 pm until 9:00 pm.   The fun begins at the Hershey Chocolate World factory store.  Not just a store but a complete attraction on its own.

Dates the Park is Open in the Fall:
August 1-31 everyday from 10 am until at least 8 pm.
September 1, 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28

Hershey Chocolate World Opens Everyday in the Fall

This factory store is really an attraction built to entertain.  Even their Times Square store in New York City can not compare to this place.  It features a ride through attraction called the Hershey’s Great American Chocolate Tour complete with animation and movie.  There is a create your own candy bar area, a trolley works for the grounds, a dessert creation station, a tasting adventure, and a 4D Chocolate Mystery attraction.

There are places to eat real food and of course a Hershey’s Bake Shoppe with more chocolate cookies, cupcakes, brownies, and cakes than just about anyplace in the country.  The store itself has all the Hershey candy sizes including mammoth candy bars.  We spent 5 hours in Chocolate World alone and still missed some things to do.

Chocolate World opens at 9:00 pm most mornings and closes at 11:00 pm most nights through August.  It closes at 6:00 pm most weekdays in September and October and 11:00 pm most weekends.  Check their calendar for exact hours and dates.

Creatures of the Night at ZooAmerica

Visit ZooAmerica for live interaction with more than 200 animals and reptiles on this 11 acre wildlife park during their nighttime walk through attraction.  This is meant to be educational and not scary.  However it takes place during Halloween times and is adjacent to The Dark at HerseyPark.  Don’t be afraid of snakes and reptiles at night.  Yeah right!

We hope you enjoy reading about the many fun things to do as we countdown to Halloween.  Today is day 103 on our countdown journey.

Image of Hershey's worlds largest chocalate bar.

Large chocolate manufacturers like Hershey and Nestle have announced as much as 10% price increases on wholesale prices this fall.  Lots of small players are in the process of raising prices to retailers.  It seems rising gas prices, wages, and unfavorable exchange rates are some factors causing the need for rising prices.

Perhaps the biggest reason is the sharp jump in commodity prices on cocoa.  El Nino, a reoccurring weather condition,  it seems might effect the West African crop causing severe shortages at a time of rising consumer demand.  Therefore it just might cause Hershey and others to pay more for the raw ingredients.  All this is speculation of course but prices probably will not jump sharply for this Halloween.

Halloween Candy Prices Probably Not Affected For 2014

Hershey is allowing current distributors and wholesale customers to buy product at the old prices until August 12th.  This will likely get us consumers through Halloween.  Most large retailers already have their Halloween and Christmas candy orders in at the old prices.

In 2015, all bets are off as to how much your favorite chocolate candy bar might rise in price.  Price increases will at some point be passed on to the consumer.

Hershey which has 43 percent of the domestic chocolate market announced sales increases of 9%.  I am glad Hershey is doing so well.  Reeces Peanut Butter Cup is my favorite followed closely by those little Hershey Kisses.  Along with Nestle and Mars it might be said that these three companies “control” the chocolate market in the United States.  Prices at the three tend to go up together.

Demand has continued to rise for chocolate products as all three major companies are moving fast into new markets such as China.

Do you have your invitation to the October 25, 2014 Halloween party at the famed Playboy Mansion?  It only takes a little bit of money and the right connections with a VIP host like Kathy Brown.

Visiting Los Angeles this fall might be a little more exciting with some advance reservations from a VIP host.  You might just be able to attend one of the Halloween parties at the Playboy Mansion such as on October 25th.  Prices start at just $1500 for a once in a lifetime opportunity.  They go quickly and can jump to as much as $15,000 for premium seating or cabanas.  Only $25,000 begins your company’s sponsor opportunities with the Playboy brand.

This is a private party by invitation only.  The mansion has 5 acres decorated for Halloween with 2 graveyard attractions, 80 scary actors, immersive lighting and sounds, music, celebrities, and more.  Of course expect to mingle with some beautiful people.

Contact Kathy Brown, one of the VIP hosts, who for the right price just might be able to get you into this scary event.  Contact Kathy at [email protected] or call (310)-922-4642.

Hugh Hefner moved his primary residence from his original Chicago Mansion in 1974.  He originally paid about $1 million for the property that is now worth about $50 million.  Of course he has expanded and added the game room and mini mansion to the grounds.  Total improvement have been around $20 million to his 22 room mansion property.  You have seen the house in Entourage and The Girls Next Door TV shows and lots of movies including Lethal Weapon 2.  The mansion is located at 10236 Charing Cross Rd., Los Angeles, California.

Unless you are Eddie Murphy do not just stop by as you won’t be able to crash the gate.

Here at Funtober our blog: Fun Things To Do As We Countdown To Halloween, brings you more fall fun.  We are now down to day 104 on our countdown.
