    Only the harsh light of day can play down the fright factor of these props for Talladega Frights, which opens at its new location at the Kern County Museum on Sept. 27.

September is jam-packed with fun activities. From the much-anticipated Village Fest to the spooky Talladega Frights, there isn't a day you should be bored.

Matt Munoz, Californian entertainment reporter, talked Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox" about upcoming events happening around town starting this weekend. He recommended people pick up a copy of The Californian to keep up.

"Village Fest is that huge social event you clock your schedule around," simulcast host Scott Cox said.

Village Fest will take place at the Kern County Museum, 3801 Chester Ave. from 6 to 10 p.m. Sept. 7.

Cox encouraged those who have never had the chance to make it out to do so this year.

"You will smell, hear, taste and experience things that won't happen the rest of the year," he said.

Another big Bakersfield event that's coming up is Talladega Frights.

Cox and Munoz agreed Bakersfield goes all out to make the event memorable.

For the past couple of years, Talladega Frights drew thousands to its location on Rosedale Highway, but this year it will be open from Sept. 27 to Nov. 3 at the Kern County Museum on Chester Avenue.
