Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

September is when we officially say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. Along with that comes some of our favorite activities. If you are worried about being bored this fall, DON’T because there is plenty of fun to go around. Here are some fun activities to kick off your fall of fun!


1. Cider and Sunflower Festival: September 17th – 19th

Valas Pumpkin Patch has a field of sunflowers ready to harvest, and lots of apple cider for kids and adults alike! Tickets are $19.95, but if you already invested in a season pass, those are accepted as well. The festival lasts from 10AM to 8PM. At the festival you can look forward to many photo op-portunities, live butterfly releases, and a menu full of sweet treats!


2. Chalk Art Festival: September 18th – 19th

4. Omaha Farmers Market: Saturdays and Sundays

There is still time for you to visit your favorite vendors. The list of vendors grows each week, and so does the variety. Come take a look at all the fresh flowers, fruits, and veggies you could ever want! Remeber, Saturdays are in the old market, and Sundays are at Baxter Arena. You better hurry though because the farmers market’s official last day is October 10th.
