Aaaah, fall. Fall has to be one of the best times of the year. The weather is cool, the leaves change to vibrant yellows, reds and browns. Everything smells like cinnamon and there are pumpkins and autumn displays in every store, on every corner and mostly likely in everyone’s home. Nothing is better than the warmth that the fall brings. This time of year definitely puts us in a cheerful mood, and what better way to enjoy it than spending the day at a Harvest Festival?
