Hey, you! Fall is just around the corner and it’s time to plan your fall festival! Whether you’re hosting a party for your company or making plans for a fun day with your friends, we’ve got some ideas that will help you make this season shine.
What should you include in your fall festival? A pumpkin patch, hay rides, and a pumpkin carving competition. Setup pumpkin painting and decorating for a safer alternative to carving if you’ll have a lot of younger children participating. Face painters are a classic choice to incorporate into Fall festivals with a caricature artist being a novelty addition!
For planning a family fun day consider local venues with pony rides and a petting zoo! Look into HorsePower for Kids & Animal Sanctuary or Old McMicky’s Farm as venue options. Incorporate food trucks if you’re expecting a large crowd, it cuts down on the prep work and cleanup duties for you!
If you’re looking for ideas about how to make the most of Autumn without planning your own event, we’ve got some tips for finding activities locally:
-Search online for local events (or ask friends and family for recommendations)
-Visit your local library or historical society for information about local events and traditions
-Check out community Facebook groups or Instagram posts from people who live nearby
