Happy National Pumpkin Day!
Fall equals pumpkins so after learning that today is National Pumpkin Day, I thought of rounding up the fun fall activities and event that we’ve been to and have experienced here in our city of Asheville, NC, and the surrounding areas .
We are lucky to be living in a place where there is always events and fun activities to go to and enjoy the whole year through. But although summer is full of fun things to do too, there is nothing like having fun with family while totally enjoying the lovely crisp and cool air and the smell of the autumn breeze. And that’s exactly why I love fall.
ART IN AUTUMN (Weaverville, NC)
The town of Weaverville is located about 10 miles north of Asheville. Art in Autumn is an annual event where they showcase arts and crafts from different vendors. Such an awesome display of creativity in this event.
ELIADA CORN MAZE (Asheville, NC)
ELIADA is a charitable organization so the proceeds from this fall activity go to a great cause. This place not only boasts of the biggest corn maze in North Carolina, they also have other fun things to do for the whole family to enjoy, especially the kids. Lots of ’em!
PUMPKIN PATCH AND MORE (Hendersonville, NC)
Hendersonville is located more or less 30 miles south of Asheville. The town is one of the biggest producers of apples in the country. Take Route 64 and there you would see different farms with apple orchards and pumpkin patches where you can pick your own apples or pumpkins. That was the second time that we’ve visited Grandad’s Apple N’ Such and that’s because the place has it all. From apple orchard to pumpkin patch and corn maze to barn animals, etc.
How about you? What are the fun fall activities and events do you have in your area?
