Fun Fall Activities

The sun sets during a fall evening.

Have you ever found yourself bummed out that summer is over? Fall means back to school, but it also means it is time for fall activities and Halloween! Pumpkin spice, cooler temperatures, football games and falling leaves bring everyone back into the fall spirit. This year, the first official day of fall is Aug. 23.
Pumpkins are a trademark for fall. Visiting a pumpkin patch is a great way to get out into nature. Sweetapple Farm Market is located in Vincent, Ohio and Stacy’s Family Farm is located in Marietta, Ohio. After picking out your perfect pumpkin, you can take it home and carve or decorate it! Visiting a pumpkin patch can be a great way to bond with friends and get new picture opportunities.
What better way to get into the fall spirit than with food? Fall treats rise in popularity during the autumn months. Caramel apples s’mores, pumpkin brownies and pumpkin pie Reese’s are a few simple and easy treats to make. Getting together with friends and watching a movie, while making fall snacks, is a great way to enjoy a fall evening. Serving hot apple cider is another way to add in a pop of fall flavor. These recipes and many others are available on
Fall nights are cool and crisp, so warm up with a bonfire! Getting a group of friends together on a Saturday is a great way to start your fall festivities. During your bonfire you can roast marshmallows, play music and make new memories with your friends!
One of the biggest holidays during the fall months is Halloween. Throwing a Halloween party may seem childish, but it holds a lot of potential to be fun! Invite all your friends and tell them to dress up in their best costume. Halloween treats, decorations, movies and music are necessities at your Halloween party. Costumes and decorations are available to purchase at Party City. Netflix also has a large selection of scary and horror movies.
