It is that time of year again when the leaves begin to change colors and the weather starts to cool down. There are many fun fall activities that you can do with your friends and family. Here are five local activities to enjoy during the fall season:
At Flinchbaugh’s Orchard & Farm Market, you can grab a wagon and walk through the pumpkin patch. There you can find small to extra large pumpkins for your choosing to pick fresh off the vine that will be perfect for decorating or carving. Flinchbaugh’s is open Monday-Saturday and is located at 110 Ducktown Rd, Hellam PA 17406.
After going to Flinchbaugh’s and picking out the perfect carving pumpkins, you can get started creating jack-o-lanterns. To carve a creative looking pumpkin it is best to draw an outline of what you want to carve. First, you also can find a design online to print and lay over your pumpkin as a guide. To make the carving as easy as possible, make sure you gut from the pumpkin and wipe the outside clean.
At Seyfert’s Corn Maze you can explore on 14 acres of land. This corn maze is one of the largest corn mazes in the area. They also have the corn maze lit up so you can go at night as well.
