Twin Cities families, it’s that glorious time of colored leaves. Of apple orchards and fall festivals and corn mazes. Oh, and pumpkin patches, too!
Take a morning or an afternoon and spend time together in an apple orchard. The Twin Cities are FULL of orchards to the north, south, east and west. Some are free to enter with a la carte fees for activities that interest you. Others have an entrance fee that includes many of the activities.
Do your kids enjoy carving pumpkins or making pumpkin pie and pumpkin bars made from fresh pumpkin? And what is more iconic than spending a night in a pumpkin patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin?
The Twin Cities is home to many, many corn mazes — if you seek agri-tainment, these are definitely for you. Check out the different options your family can enjoy together.
Because we live in one of the most beautiful settings for fall, it seems only fair that we have a plethora of fall festivals. I remember when I was a kid we enjoyed our weekends in the fall going to an annual fall festival in Sisseton, SD. But you don’t need to go that far to find a fantastic festival; we have plenty right here in the Twin Cities.
I don’t know about you, but I am really feeling the heat. It’s that time of year when even the most hearty Minnesotans melt. We try to remember what it’s like when it’s negative degrees in January, but it’s no use. While there are some you thrive in the heat, I know there are many of us who could do without the heat and humidity.
So FFTC is here once again, helping you to stay cool during this hot summer days.
