Fall Bucket List
2020 is flying by and we are already into the Fall season. This means pumpkin carving, cozy sweaters, and the changing of leaves. To get you into the fall spirit, here is a list of must-do fall activities (even during quarantine).
If you are looking to get outdoors and take in the crisp fall air then visit your local pumpkin patch. Pumpkin patches are the perfect place to spend a couple of hours with your friends or family, while simultaneously supporting your local communities. Besides picking out a pumpkin to carve, many pumpkin patches also have fair games and corn mazes you can enjoy.
Fall brings around the perfect weather, a great medium between the hot summers and the freezing winters. This weather creates the perfect atmosphere for a fall picnic. Find a local park or nature preserve with a scenic view and invite your friends to a picnic. Have each friend bring a different food item and create a smorgasbord of all your fall favorites! Try our SWEET CHI soup for the perfect fall bisque, combining sweetness from the butternut squash with just the right amount of spice. Fall wouldn’t be right without something pumpkin on the menu. Get creative with the baked goods you bring, from pumpkin pie to spiced coffee cake. Finish it off with apple cider to drink, and you have created the perfect fall picnic.
For those thrill-seekers out there, a go-to fall event has to be a haunted house. If you want to get your heart pumping, find a haunted house near you and go with your friends and make a night out of it. Be prepared to get startled and maybe even scream a bit as you walk through spooky-themed houses and are greeted by masked men popping out at every corner.
Fall Movie Marathon
Nothing gets you into the fall spirit like binge-watching some classic Halloween movies. Grab some popcorn and maybe even some candy apples, if you are feeling festive, and cozy up on the couch.
If you are wanting a family movie, try Halloweentown. The movie is the first in a series of 3 that chronicles the life of a young girl who discovers she is a witch and follows her grandma to Halloweentown where she meets an array of magical beings.
If you are looking for a classic, watch Hocus Pocus or Practical Magic. Both movies offer entertaining, spooky stories about sister witches.
And if you want to get into the scary spirit, watch the Halloween franchise.
Some honorable mentions also include Beetlejuice, The Addams Family, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
