Things to Do to Get in the Spirit of Autumn

Though Halloween is the most prominent holiday of October, we believe that October is a great time to get yourself into the fall mood. Beyond all of the spooky decorations and horror movies, autumn is a beautiful month to be enjoyed! In this week’s Barton’s Mill Apartments Blog we’ve come up with a short list of things you can do to get into the spirit of the season!

Head to a Corn Maze

Get immersed in some of fall’s most popular activities by heading to Barton Hill Farms or Sweet Berry Farm for some pumpkin picking, kid-friendly activities, and a corn maze! Enjoy the slightly cooler weather and get into the mood of autumn!

Carve Pumpkins

The fall is commonly associated with pumpkins, especially during the Halloween season. Pumpkin carving is the perfect way to get feel the fall spirit! Whether you’re carving out a scary pumpkin for the sake of Halloween or just carving something decorative to put on your porch, it’s a wholesome activity that’s great for the entire family or people of all ages.

Enjoy Oktoberfest/Wurstfest

Autumn has many things to do, like Oktoberfest and Wurstfest. Oktoberfest features German music, delicious cuisine, beer, even things to do for the kids! If you miss Oktoberfest, you can still enjoy the festivities of carnival rides and German-style sausages at Wurstfest. Either festival you brings all the makings for you to get into the spirit of the season! If you do attend Oktoberfest, remember to drink responsibly!

Fall in Austin, TX can be different from other colder places, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have similar experiences! October doesn’t always need to revolve around Halloween, either. We hope you enjoyed our suggestions on how to get into the fall mood. If you have any other suggestions, don’t hesitate to let our apartment community know of them by leaving a comment!
