About Funtober

Funtober was started in 2012 to provide a home on the internet for people who love fall and Halloween. Our goal for the past five years has been to become the go to resource for information on fall festivals, pumpkin patches, haunted houses, Halloween parties and costumes. We are currently expanding into Thanksgiving and Black Friday as part of our coverage of the best parts of fall.

Since its founding, Funtober has been mentioned in multiple media outlets, including the Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, New Jersey Monthly, Chesapeake Family, Hire an Esquire, WJAR NBC (Rhode Island), Technically Philly, and ChicagoNow.

We are a small operation without a full time person yet. We have been able to grow organically while keeping our costs low. We look forward to one day growing our revenues enough to be able to support a small team working on making the best website for autumn imaginable.

meHi. My name is Robert Melton. I’m the vampire responsible for creating Funtober. When I’m not working on Funtober, I am an attorney living in Philadelphia. I am a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School in 2006 and Cornell University in 2000.

We have had an extensive internal debate about the vampire photo. If you want to weigh in on it, or anything else, you can reach me at rob AT funtober DOT com. We resolved to add another photo of me up here to satisfy those concerned about my status as a semi-normal human (i.e., my dad!). There should be one up here at some point.

The Funtober address is 501 Silverside Rd, Ste 105, Wilmington, DE 19809. We prefer that you use the contact page to reach us although you can leave us a voicemail at 302-298-1000 or 1-866-OKTOBER.

Prost and Happy Halloween!
