Fall Festivals in Florida, celebrating Fall in a state that doesn’t experience much of Fall?

As I’m writing this down the irony hits me that I’m writing an article about “Fall Festivals” in Florida; a state that doesn’t really experience fall. In most cases we go from Summer to Spring and then back to summer a few months later. Don’t get me wrong, some parts of the state (particularly in the north) will experience fall. But it’s short lived.

So let’s talk about fall festivals. Great opportunities to get some cute pictures of your family in a pumpkin patch. Then you can pick one out to take home and carve. All the while hoping the bugs and heat don’t get the best of it before Halloween arrives. There’s usually other stuff going on at these events as well, from hay rides, to contests, barbecue, kettle corn, to corn “maizes” to haunted houses and other holiday events. Trust me, there will be enough going on that you’ll stay busy through Christmas.

We visited a great one this past weekend put on by Bedner’s Farms in Boynton Beach, FL. Tons of people and tons of cool stuff to do from a new gem mine to air cannons to hay rides to the petting zoo and more! (pics shown below).

For more details about this and other pumpkin patches around the state, I found a few sites that list a bunch of them!

Happy Adventuring!

Bedner’s operates year round as a produce market and seasonally as a “you pick” farm that hosts a really cool fall festival

$5 for a bag or $8 for a box. We tried these for the first time and we’re ruined!
