What Can You Do on a Fall Day?

We North Carolinians don’t need a calendar to know that the seasons have changed and fall has arrived. The days are cooler, the sun sets earlier and the foliage is beginning to peak. With the cooler temperatures of autumn finally here, now’s the perfect time for outdoor fun.

While the temporary suspension of large public gatherings has triggered the cancellation of many fall events, there are still pumpkin patches, corn mazes and other festivities to enjoy! Get out and relish the changing colors and some of the local activities that we’ve found around your Capitol City Homes’ communities. Remember that proper face covering and social distancing are mandatory for most events. We encourage you to check each event’s website to confirm that the venue is open, review their COVID-19 restrictions, and check dates and ticket prices, if appropriate.
