Fall into Autumn, Part I

In ode to my favorite season/holiday/weather in the New York City, this next month will be dedicated to welcoming Fall. Now presenting - Fall into Autumn, 2008.

Just in time for fall, they City Borough’s are heating things up with some food and fun for the masses.

Check out the Queens County Farm Museum Apple Festival, featuring cider-press demos, hayrides, and apples tastings. This year the Musuem plans on breaking the nation’s record for the largest apple cobbler ever baked.

Pick Your Own at the Greenbelt Pumpkin Festival in Staten Island. Along with pumpkin picking, face painting, arts and crafts and a Victorian carousel will be offered, free of charge.

To inspire your inner goblin, the Puppetry Arts Theatre in Brooklyn is presenting its third annual Haunted Halloween Carnival. The theater will be providing puppetry workshops, along with a super-spooky haunted house and silent auction.

The New York Botanical Garden will be offering lessons on how to prepare the garden for the frigid months. Hang around and take some sketches of the beautiful fall foliage.
