You can smell it in the air! Even in Florida, our morning weather has changed. There’s a slight briskness in the temperature that wasn’t there before. Pumpkin spice is everywhere you look! While we live in Florida and our seasons don’t really change, true Floridians know, the seasons are changing! Many call it Summer Jr. For most, this is their favorite time of the year!
It’s not too cold, not too hot, but just right. This is a time of shedding the old and starting anew. It’s also a time to enjoy the various fall festivals going on locally.
Pumpkin patches are all the rage, especially for the kids.
Community Presbyterian Church in downtown Celebration puts on an amazing fall festival and has an awesome pumpkin patch! Enjoy homemade treats, apple cider, and of course, pumpkin spice lattes. The Fall Festival goes from October 16-17th from 10 am-6 pm and the pumpkin patch is open until October 31st.
Lake Nona Pumpkin Patch at Boxi Park offers live entertainment, specialty foods and drinks, pumpkins for purchase, and costumes are much welcomed! Open Thursday through Sunday, this event will be here until October 31st, and an awesome bonus is: admission is free!
