Fun Fall Festivals

With fall weather moving in, it’s pumpkin season. Fall festivals are in full swing including Oktoberfests, pumpkin patches, and haunted houses. Here are some of the best things you can do with your family this fall.

Trailing of the Sheep

Second to Sydney, Australia in sheep ranches is the state of Idaho, and every year, the Wood River Valley hosts the Trailing of the Sheep Festival to honor this tradition. The sheep and human population ratio is practically 1:1, so it’s a huge celebration including both species.

Family events include storytelling, championship sheepdog trials, culinary demonstrations, and a sheep parade. Third generation sheep farmers sponsor this parade in hopes of bringing visitors through Ketchum, Idaho to the sheep’s winter home, raising awareness and having fun.

North Carolina Pecan Harvest Festival

Pecan pie is as southern as sweet tea, and the North Carolina Pecan Harvest Festival celebrates the pecan harvest in the most delightful way. With a pecan run, a cooking contest, and a car show, southerners, and those who appreciate this southern tradition, can enjoy these good eats.

Kids can get up close and personal with animals in the petting zoo and participate in a hands-on exhibit to learn about natural sciences while their parents tour the quintessential southern homes. Wrap up your day with the pecan queen’s lunch and a parade.

Adirondack Balloon Festival

The Adirondack Balloon Festival has been around for almost fifty years. Balloon pilots come from all around the world to participate in Glen Falls, New York. Enjoy music as more than twenty hot air balloons take flight to kick off the four-day festival.

Stick around to see eighty balloons launch, including shaped balloons as well as moonglow displays in the night sky. Honor the beauty of these balloons with food vendors, pancake breakfasts, crafts, and more! It’s fun for the whole family all week long!

Celebrate this season together with your family in your comfy Tommy jeans and enjoy the cooler weather, beautiful colors, and bountiful harvest.
