Fall activities for the Family!
Get out and enjoy this Fall Season! The leaves are changing, the smell of apple cider is in the air, and it’s finally sweater weather! I can’t get enough of this time of the year! Here are a few activities to help you enjoy the change of the season!
This weekend in Niagara Falls is the 2nd Annual Old Falls Street Oktoberfest. The event is located on Old Falls Street and runs until 11pm tonight. This Fest will have everything you can imagine an Oktoberfest should have! Join them for authentic German cuisine, a selection of German beers, live entertainment, and they even have a Kidtoberfest Kids Zone!
I had the chance to check out this event last weekend and I have to say I had a blast, rain and all!! This weekend you might want to check out this fall season is the Annual Pumpkin Fiesta at Becker Farms in Gasport. This one has something for everyone in the family to try! The fiesta runs every weekend in October. Listen to some of these events that the farm has to offer – Hillbilly Bob’s Pig Rock Derby which is Pig Races with Music, the Castle Labyrinth which you can get really lost in but come out with some fantastic memories, and even free live music from 1p to 4p. Along with that you can even take a ride on the Hay Rides through the forest and fields! Seriously that’s just the beginning of activities they have planned out for you at Becker Farms so go check it out for yourself. By the way starting October 7th and running till the end of October they start getting into the Halloween spirit with the Haunted Hayrides. First they let you wander through the spooky turns in the castle of Labyrinth then once through you’ll get to huddle with your friends as you take ride on the terrifying Haunted Hayride!
Another great activity this weekend especially if you have never tried is Apple and Pear Picking. It is definitely a must this year! I’ve asked around to see if there are any extra special places out there that my friends like and I’ve had many of them say Blackman Homestead Farm. The farm is located on Thrall Road in Lockport and is open 7 days a week from 9am to 6pm. You’ll get a chance to enjoy picking pears, apples, and even grapes from their 100 year old orchards and vineyards. Along with their huge variety of fruit you can pick yourself they have fresh pressed cider, pumpkins, squash, grape juice, fruit butters, and that’s seriously just the beginning. I know that sounds like a lot of fun and it couldn’t get any better but wait there’s more! The farm even has barnyard animals and a straw climbing area the kids are going to love!
