Brr -- after a mere five seconds outside this morning, I realized it's definitely fall. From the chilly temperatures to the falling leaves, autumn is making itself more and more evident as the days pass. There's no better way to celebrate the season than by attending local fall festivals and fairs!
One popular upcoming event that celebrates the season is the Harvest Festival, scheduled for Saturday, October 22 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m in Brooklyn, New York. The festival, which is sponsored by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy and the Brooklyn Bridge Park, will take place on Pier 6. According to its Web site, it will feature "a Halloween parade, musical guests, face painting, storytelling, art activities, mask making and pumpkin decorating." Look for tons of fall giveaways, as well as performances by Erin Lee and the Up Past Bedtime Band and the Pop Ups.
The fair will also offer health screenings and wellness information, so keep an eye out for imprinted health giveaways that will help keep you fit all year long. Attendees will even have the chance to meet physicians from the University Hospital of Brooklyn at Long Island College Hospital. What a great opportunity!
There are dozens of other fall festivals across America, as well. Take a look at iExplore.com's list of The Best Fall Festivals in the US to find an autumn fair near you!
