Celebrate Autumn: Local Fun!

September 26, 2013


Do you have plans for this weekend yet? If not, get into the fall spirit by hitting up a local festival or event! There are lots of fun ways to celebrate autumn in Central Ohio–here are just a few!

Columbus Oktoberfest promises to be a ruckus event, as it has been for the past 48 years. With activities for kids, a 4 mile run, an arts and crafts market, and of course, flowing libations, you’ll definitely find something to do there!

Check out the gorgeous Barberton Mum Festival ! Piles of colorful mums are everywhere–thy boast over one million blooms. They’re arranged in formal gardens, that remind me of Dutch tulip fields, and in more creative ways, like on giant arches, in sand sculptures, and in collage displays. Besides the mums, check out the water skiing show and canoe races on beautiful Lake Anna, plus tons of food and craft vendors.

The Barnesville Pumpkin Festival looks to be lots of fun. With a completely jam packed schedule of events and lots of live music, you’ll find something to interest everyone in the family (I’d hit up the “Tall Tales Storytelling Competition”, the “Beard and Moustache Competition”, and the “Tobacco Spitting Competition” for sure.)

There are literally dozens of festivals, fairs, and shows going on this month, you can search through them all here or here, and check out this Ohio Festival blog, written by someone who has visited practically every single one across the state!
