This weekend, get your fill of fall festivals

If you like, this weekend you can do a mini fall festival tour around the Centre Region. Here’s four fun ones that will make for a nice autumn weekend:

- On Saturday, Way Fruit Farm has the second day of their annual Apple Festival. It will feature wagon rides to pumpkin patch, pick-your-own apples, local craft show, homemade soup and apple dumplings, kids games, meet greyhounds from Nittany Greyhounds, and more! It runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

- The Wasson Farm Fall Festival will be held tomorrow and Sunday starting at 10:00 a.m. both days. Enjoy homemade soups and apple butter, plus you can take a hayride to the pumpkin patch to pick that perfect jack-o-lantern (for a reasonable $6 a pumpkin, any pumpkin). Last ride out is at 4:30 p.m. both days.

- Then, on both Saturday and Sunday, you can head down to Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center for their Fall Harvest Festival, featuring delicious local food, nature activities, music, and storytelling. For the little ones, they also include the Children’s Halloween Trail. You can find more information here.

- And if you want to fire your local food into a lake, the Howard Volunteer Fire Co. Fall Festival will feature the always popular Punkin’ Chunkin’. Ten chunkin’ machines will fire pumpkins surprisingly long distances into the lake at Bald Eagle State Park. You can even have your children try their hand at launching pumpkins as there will be smaller launchers for them to try. Other activities include local food and craft vendors, live bands, hayrides, pie-eating contest, and more. Learn more here.
