Magic of Fall Festivals

by WriterArtist

Magic of fall festival is undisputed and enjoyed by one and all. Alas, not lasting forever, it paves the way to autumn colours and winter Christmas celebrations.

In the Northern Hemisphere, fall is September, October and up to middle of November, a unique season between summer and winter. With summer gone, fall e brings cooler climate and crisp air. This makes it, the best time of the year for travel, outdoors activities and having an exciting time. This is the season; people want to spend time outside their homes and hence perfect for vacations. Beach time gives way to football, apple and pumpkin. All in all, fall is a magical season and all want to make the most of it.

Fall is also time to celebrate harvesting of crops – grapes, cranberries, apples, squash and pumpkins. People throng to farms and orchards across the country to pick their own produce. It is also a photo op for family pictures with farm animals and scarecrows.

DerdriuMarriner - Hot air balloon can be really one of the most fascinating options to enjoy colours of Fall. Involving community, organising funfair is a great way of bringing people together while promoting local vendors and farmers.

The hot air balloon fiesta in New Mexico is one of my favorite autumnal magical experiences because of the community spirit and local and visitor enthusiasm over quality products. It always makes me think of New Mexican author Rudolfo Anaya, who set one of his Sonny Baca mysteries at that time and in that place.
