Finally Fall…

If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting a long time for this.

It’s finally Fall, and according to The Foliage Network, we’ve had about a 30% change in leaf coloration and we’ll most likely hit peak fall colors two weeks from now! Can’t wait!! Fall colors are happening about a week ahead of schedule this year thanks to the hot, dry summer we recently endured. If you’re ready to get into the Fall spirit why not check out some of these fun fall events happening locally, and don’t forget to check out some of our great fall-themed library books, as well.

Check out the Fremont Harvest Festival, take the family for your own self-guided Fall Color Tour,  visit a local farm with Kent Harvest Trails, and who could miss out on donuts and cider at nearby Robinettes, or go for a bike ride through some colorful Michigan trails. A full Fall and Halloween guide can also be accessed here for tons more suggestions!
