Can you believe it’s fall? What a crazy 2020 it has been! None the less, fall is still our favorite time of year and we love the activities that come with it. We have put together this list of fall events and activities and events for you to enjoy fall to the fullest!
Fall Events, Activities, and More
From pumpkin patches to the animal ark, we are sharing 8 ideas for you to do this fall.
Can you even let fall pass without a trip or two to a pumpkin patch? See our complete guide of local pumpkin patches and let us know which patch is your favorite! Some of our favorite activities at the farms include:
Picking out Pumpkins
Movie Nights at Ferrari Farms
Ferrari Farms is hosting movie nights on the farm. Entry is $8 per person and must be booked in advance. A list of showtimes and movies are listed below. Bring your own chairs, blankets, and smores supplies (encluding sticks) and enjoy!
Plan a day trip to Apple Hill! Check with individual plans as some farms are taking reservations. They are asking that you limit your visit to your own household. Check out our Ultimate Apple Hill Guide to help you plan your trip!
Nothing makes my kids more excited for Halloween then our annual “boo’ing”. Join in the fun and “Boo your neighbor” or a friend! Use our free printable, gather your favorite goodies, and get to boo’ing!
Head to the Animal Ark
We love Animal Ark! The cooler weather is the perfect time to visit the ark and see the animals more active. They also have 2 popular events that also occur in the fall. Details for those below.
This is one of the most popular events the Animal Ark holds! Because of COVID-19 precautions they have expanded the event over 2 days. Reservations are required, 4 different reservation times available.
Open Daily from September 19th – Ocotber 19th or until apples are gone.
Head to Washoe for some Apple picking at Franktown Apples (also known as APple Basket U-Pick Apple Orchard).
Franktown Apples is located at 7425 Franktown Road in Washoe Valley.
Stay Indoors For Some Fun
We are all praying for the smoke to blow off but until it does we are planning some fun indoors! My personal favorites include some jump time at DEFY (use NVMOMS for 20% off your total) and a trip down to Northern Nevada Children’s Museum! See our complete list of indoor activities here.
