Fun Fall Festivities
By Molly Kraisinger
September 22 marked the beginning of fall. Cincinnati offers a variety of activities to celebrate the fall season. Wondering what you can do in this not too cool, not too warm weather? Here are a few ideas how to spend your time in the best season of the year.
In this cool weather there are plenty of things to do outside. It’s not too late to go to a football game. Elder plays Moeller for their last GCL football game of the season this Friday at the PAC. The Cincinnati Bengals still have 11 playoff games left. Their next game is away against the Buffalo Bills. You can catch the game at home with friends and family at 1:00 on Sunday.
Not a sports fan? Head to a pumpkin patch. Until October 31st, Blooms and Berries Farm market is a great place to go. With only a one dollar admission fee, the farm includes farm animals, fresh food and apple cider, a corn maze. When you are there, make sure to go on a hay ride and pick out your pumpkins to take home.
Don’t forget to eat the foods that are in season! Pumpkin pie, caramel apples, and apple cider are all around. Caramel apples may be sticky but they are very simple to make. Just get a few apples, melt the caramel in a saucepan till it is has a runny consistency, stick a skewer right through the middle of the apple, and then dip them in the Carmel till it covers almost the entire apple. Roll the apple in some chopped peanuts to finish and allow it cool on parchment paper. Enjoy!
Whether it is making festive food or exploring activities nearby, fall is the best time to get outside before the cold weather is here.
