Tomorrow is the first day of Fall and I couldn’t be happier. It’s my favorite season. I love sweater weather, the smells of soups and fall recipes being cooked on the stove. Lisa and I love to dress up in costume for Halloween, too. Our little downtown has a very heavily attended Tricks or Treats on Halloween and almost all of the downtown businesses participate. It gets pretty crazy, so our kids and grandkids help out every year. It’s a lot of fun.
Henderson has lots of things happening in the Fall. Cates Farm has become a family tradition for us. They have an 11 acre corn maze, acres of pumpkins, hayrides, bonfires, food and games.
The Fall Farmer’s Market is also a great place to visit and buy pumpkins and Fall fruits and veggies. It’s at the Henderson County Fairgrounds.
The Arts and Crafts Festival at John James Audubon State Park is always a great event, too.
The Spooks and Legends Haunted Tour, of which we are a participant, is a spooky little tour of downtown and it’s haunted history.
For a more detailed list of events in the Fall, here’s a link to the Henderson Tourist Commission’s Fall Calendar of Events.
I hope you enjoy the following pics from Falls and Halloweens past.
