Leaves are changing, the cool fall air is setting in, and pumpkin flavor is on our taste buds. Fun fall activities are in season. Festivals, jumping in leaves, football, hunting, and Halloween are just some activities that are enjoyed this time of year. What is your ideal fall day and how would you spend it?
The Squire interviewed Ally Mineweaser and Kyle Coons to get some ideas on how they spend their fall days. Ally enjoys pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. Her favorite fall activity to do inside is to carve huge pumpkins with her family and setting up Halloween decorations outside. “My ideal fall day is going outside for a walk, smelling the fall air and watching the leaves change colors,” Ally told The Squire.
The Squire also caught up with Kyle Coons. He enjoys watching NASCAR with his family and spending time outside racing. His favorite drink is warm apple cider. Kyle explained is perfect fall day, “My ideal fall day is going out racing with my friends and trying new tricks and jumps.” Kyle also told The Squire that he hunts deer in the fall. His favorite part is gutting the deer and bringing home his prize.
Overall, fall is a time where sitting in your house drinking a pumpkin latte is perfectly relaxing. Listening to trees in the wind and feeling the cool breeze on your face as the days of fall drift by, or spending quality time in nature when hunting.
Another fun option to enjoy the fall season is going to fall festivals, where you’re sure to be able to get some warm apple cider. Some upcoming festivals are The Jonny Appleseed Festival in Sheffield, PA, which is October,12 through the 14. This year, there is a new pumpkin themed attraction near Busti, NY, not too far from Eisenhower, it is opening for the first time this year and is called Pumpkinville, which is located in Great Valley, New York from now till October 31. Another popular spot to get in the fall mood is Port Farms in Waterford, PA. It is open from now until October 31, and is full of lots of fall fun, such as pumpkins, slides, and even a themed photo spot for visitors to document their visit. This season, get out and enjoy yourself!
