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┬áto 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!

Welcome to Floridafunstuff!

Hi and thanks for visiting the Floridafunstuff site!

As a thrill seeking 4th generation Florida native, there’s so many cool adventures in my head that when I tell people about them they always say “you need to put this in a book or website or something”, so here we are! In addition, almost everything I do in Florida costs under $20. So many people shy away from visiting because of the sticker shock that comes with the popular theme parks. Don’t get me wrong, they’re a ton of fun too…but a family of four should anticipate spending around $500 per DAY!!

I’ll be here to guide you and your family through many places and activities┬áthat won’t break the bank.

Stay tuned and get ready for year round adventures and family memories!
