  Fall is in full swing with all the leaves changing color and pumpkin flavored foods displayed everywhere. Although the weather is getting colder, there are plenty of things for you to do this time of year.

  Here is the ultimate fall bucket list to help you make the most of the season:

  Go to a Pumpkin Patch

  Fall is the season of all things pumpkin. Taking a trip to a pumpkin patch is the perfect way to spend a chilly afternoon with your family or friends.

  Brown’s Orchard and Farm Market offers wagon rides to take you up to the pumpkin patch, where you can pick your own pumpkin. Rides are on Saturday’s (9am-6pm) and Sunday’s (9am-4pm), and they cost $3 per person. Each pumpkin is priced between $2-$12.

Some people get creative with their pumpkin carving designs, such as this owl design.

Carve Pumpkins

  Once you’ve picked your very own pumpkin from a pumpkin patch, it’s time to carve it. You can go for the classic Jack-o-lantern style, or you can try a new design, such as carving a skeleton or a bat.

  Go Apple Picking

  Fresh apples that you have picked yourself always seem to taste better than store bought ones. You can also use the apples you’ve picked to make apple cider, applesauce and other delicious treats.

  Make Pumpkin Everything

  There are endless options for what you can make that has pumpkin in it. From pumpkin muffins to pumpkin spice lattes, there’s something for everyone.

  Here are some recipes to try if you’re not sure what to make:

  1. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
  2. Pumpkin Muffins
  3. Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

  Decorate Your House

Having a bonfire is the perfect way to spend a fall night.

  Get ready for Halloween by putting up spooky decorations around your house. Be sure to decorate outside too, so trick-or-treaters will get to experience the fun as well.

  Have a Bonfire

  What better way to stay warm as the weather starts to get colder than to have a bonfire? Bring some marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers to make s’mores, get some friends together, and you’ll be ready for a perfect fall night.

  Go to Maize Quest or Field of Screams

  Maize Quest has several attractions and mazes for you to go through, but the main maze is going through a cornfield. As you find your way through the maze, there are several stops where you will answer questions, decode words and find picture rubbings. General admission tickets cost $11.32.

  Field of Screams is a less family-friendly destination, but it is worth going to if you like horror. The most popular attraction is the haunted hayride, but there are several other attractions as well. There are also haunted houses and trails. It costs $34 to go to all four attractions.

  Scary Movie Marathon

  There are tons of new Halloween movies coming out this year, including Boo! A Madea Halloween. If you aren’t into spooky movies, you can always watch Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown or any of the Scream movies.

  Go Black Friday Shopping

  It may be only October, but stores are already putting out their deals on various items for Black Friday. It’s never too early to start planning what stores you want to hit when you shop on Friday, November 25.

  Go On a Drive to Look at the Leaves

  Fall foliage can be very beautiful. Taking a drive to look at the red, yellow and orange hues of the leaves can be not only relaxing, but also breathtaking.
