Festive Fall Fun

With the fall equinox officially upon us, what better way to welcome the cooler weather and crisp autumn air than getting out to explore and have some fun! While a handful of events and festivals are still paused for the 2021 season, there is still plenty to do and see! There are the usual crowd pleasers with an abundance of apple cider, pumpkins, and hayrides, but also some adult fun that includes spooky libations, zombies, and the forever classic time warp! No matter your preference, the endless options are sure to delight! Below are a few standouts that make me reminisce my childhood growing up on the East Coast, and some new traditions I love sharing with my family here in Denver. I know I’ll be adding a few additional activities to my calendar while my pumpkin muffins are baking this weekend!
