Summer is officially over… where did it go? That means fall fun is here! My favorite time of the year! Bring on the falling leaves, apple cider, and full moons! But the most important parts of fall are the 5 F’s of Fall!
Football isn’t just right without it being a little chilly, so fall weather is just perfect! Tailgating is in full swing you have the perfect weather for a game, crispy air in the morning but it feels just right come game time. You can wear your fall boots and cute sweaters to the game! But nothing beats the bonfires that night. You share laughter, listen to country music and have a beautiful view of the perfect fall night sky with your friends.
Its harvest season! Fall is a busy time for farmers. Farmers share many moonlight dinners in the fields with their wife that she was happy to make. They are up at the crack of dawn and have many late nights getting the crops out of the fields before winter approaches. Combines are cutting in a staggered line and air smells fresh as the corn is being cut. Tractors and trailers are lined up at the elevator each night waiting to unload so they can make it home and do it all over again the next day.
In Indiana there are festivals all year round but fall festivals are my favorite. One of Indiana’s largest festivals begins October 10 and runs through the 19th. The Covered Bridge Festival is right around the corner where you can enjoy a wide array of shopping and other attractions like the historical covered bridges, Amish country and try the maple syrup. So before your schedule gets too busy be sure to make time to hit up at least one Indiana fall festival.
My all time favorite thing of fall is to go four wheeling at the Badlands in Attica. I love the adrenaline rush you get but also getting a little dirty in the mud. All while riding you get to enjoy the beautiful scenery around you of the leaves changing and enjoy the beautiful weather.
But the best part of fall is spending time with your Family. All of the “F’s” would not be as fun if you did not have the ones you love around you to share them with. Spending time outdoors enjoying the crisp fall air ,whether it be at a football game or at festival be thankful for the traditions you may share.
