Ocala Fall Horse Trials
Being that Ocala is the center of many horse-related sporting events, the Ocala Fall Horse Trials are top of mind for a lot of equestrians in October.

Spectators and participants will have a great time at this alcohol-free and pet-free Jeep-only event.
Marion County Halloween Run 2019
If you love to run, you don’t want to miss this 5K/10K run at the Paddock Mall on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 2:00 PM, but the races start at 4:00 PM. This event promises food trucks, live music, a costume contest, and more. Participants in the timed race have the chance to earn bling and points, too.
This year, Halloween takes place on Thursday, October 31, 2019. Expect to see miniature ghouls, goblins, and Disney princesses running through your neighborhood. Please drive with extra care as we approach Halloween, as there are extra pedestrians who may or may not be paying attention to vehicles and traffic. You can help avoid any Halloween missteps if you come into Pals Ocala Auto Repair for a free safety inspection.
October Brakes for Breasts
During the entire month of October, a select group of auto repair shops around the country participate in this fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. We offer free brake pads for vehicles needing brake service and 10% of the proceeds go towards finding a cure for breast cancer. Brake repair and service is a terrific way to make sure your vehicle can operate safely around all the Trick-Or-Treaters.
To book your brake repair and free safety inspection, schedule an appointment at Pals Ocala Auto Repair. We are conveniently located at 2821 SW College Road, Ocala, FL, 34474. We look forward to taking great care of you and your vehicle this October.
