The summer highs are finally over. Before winter takes over for good, experience the season of the year in Salt Lake City. Fall is the perfect time to go out and celebrate.
There will be enough pumpkin patches, festivals, and frights for everyone to enjoy. Whether you are raising your beer stein on the Wasatch range or getting lost in a maze of corn, there are limitless possibilities for fun.
Dia de los Muertos
The Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley City will soon celebrate Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) with traditional Mexican dance, music, food, and crafts. While there, you can also walk through an exhibit of traditional altars and related art.
A traditional German celebration with food, beer, and activities, Oktoberfest is held at the Snowbird ski resort August through October, every Saturday and Sunday. Snowbird encourages a family friendly atmosphere where all are welcome.
If you’re after something outside of the city, the Witchstock Festival in Ogden is a costume party with carnival games and a zombie crawl. A crawl, for those uninitiated (or who haven’t been bitten), is a public gathering of brain and party hungry zombies in an urban setting. The festival will also include a Monster Bash dance party hosted by Dracula himself.
Last on the list is a family favorite, Wheeler Farm’s Pumpkin Days. The event runs through October and is $10 for those over the age of two. The price of admission comes with its own pumpkin and unlimited rides on the Wagon Ride, Cow Train, or through the hay maze.
Whatever you choose, these activities can help you get in the fall mood. All are great examples of fun things to do with friends and family.
