    Welcome to Fall Fest!

    November 9, 2017

    It’s time to get in the spirit of Fall with some fun activities for families and friends. You’ll find something fun to do in Louisiana no matter where your interests lie. Here are five suggestions to inspire you to get out and about one of these weekends.

    Visit a Corn Maze

    You’ll find corn, straw or mazes of other fall produce designed in autumn. They’re fun places to spend time outdoors and you’ll get some exercise as you try to find your way through rows of corn standing taller than your head. Some are simple enough for kids while others are challenging for the most adventurous soul.

    Go for a Hot-air Balloon Ride

    As the temperatures drop just enough to be comfortable in the fall, you’ll want to spend this time outside. A hot-air balloon ride gives you a new perspective on your neighborhood. Pack a picnic lunch for the end of your excursion to enjoy some of the best days of the entire year.

    .

    Enjoy a Hayride

    Many fall activities include a hayride as the highlight of the day. A bale or pile of hay or straw provides a comfortable seat as you enjoy the fresh air and warm sunlight. Plan a nighttime hayride and you can snuggle in a blanket while gazing at the stars in the night sky.

    Host a Bonfire

    Plan a fun get-together and build a huge bonfire. Roast hot dogs and marshmallows or make smores as you tell stories around the fire. As the evenings cool down, it’s the perfect time to listen to the sounds of the night amid laughter from your friends. If there’s a bit of a chill, the fire will keep you warm.

    .

    Pick Apples

    Find a local apple farm that allows you to pick your own apples. It’s fun to go with a friend or the family and pick up fallen apples. Just imagine all the delicious mouth-watering recipes you can make with them. From apple pie to apple fritters, you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor.
