The Fall season is upon us, and school is back in session. (Hurray!)
I always think of this season as a time for fresh beginnings. It’s also the time for regional events, which are always unique and interesting. Here are a few in the U.S. you might want to explore.
- The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze, Croton-on-Hudson, New York – The celebration of the Jack O’Lantern is a full swing party here! There are more than 7,000 pumpkins carved by the artisans at the Van Cortland Manor displayed on the grounds of the stately home. This goes on through November.
- Sever’s Corn Maze and Fall Festival, Shakopee, Minnesota – this annual event runs through Halloween. There are music events, pumpkin sculptures, art installations, and the not to be missed, corn maze. The largest in the state!
- Autumn at the Arboretum, Dallas, Tx – This event has a Pumpkin Village and gardens full of fall decorations. You can also visit A tasteful Place which is their food, herb, and vegetable garden. Plus, live bands. This exciting event runs through November 1st.
- The North Carolina Pecan Harvest Festival, Whiteville, North Carolina – Here we have everything from musical entertainment to craft vendors, a fun run, in the town known as the top producer of pecans in the state. The festival runs the weekend of November 5-6.
Wherever you live, you can find wonderful activities to celebrate fall my favorite season.
