Visit a Festival or County Fair
What's more fun than the whirl of a Ferris wheel, the smell of fresh popcorn, sampling some sticky cotton candy, shopping for handmade arts and crafts, seeing hundreds of farm animals and watching flashing colorful neon lights? This autumn, make plans to head to a local festival or county fair for some cool fall fun. There are sure to be several coming soon to a location near you.
Festivals.com provides an extensive list of family-oriented festivals, as well as nature, music, sports and cultural events. Festival Network Online also does an excellent job of providing fair and festival information for over 20,000 events across North America.
FTN families have told us their kids have always enjoyed state and county fairs. Some other fall family favorites include Renaissance Faires and Haunted Houses and Attractions.
