Amish buggy in Lancaster County

As the weather cools off and the leaves become colorful, everyone likes to get out of the house and enjoy nature. Maybe you have your classic rituals to celebrate the Fall holidays, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find new favorites too.

If you have been looking for new ideas to explore, Discover Lancaster recently shared some of the most fun spots in Lancaster County to check out. Here are some of the highlights.

Pumpkin Madness Festival

You might think painting and carving is the only way to have fun with pumpkins, but November 6th’s Pumpkin Madness Festival is encouraging you to experiment.

Instead of trashing your Halloween pumpkin, bring it here to use for bowling, golf, or a variety of other creative ways to have fun smashing it.

World’s Largest Chicken BBQ

Cooler weather typically means the end of grilling season, but you can save the best for last. This event is certified by the Guinness Book of Records as legitimately being the world’s largest chicken BBQ.

Happening October 16, enjoy some great food at one last huge BBQ for the season.

Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire

You may not think of knights and dragons as something that heralds the arrival of Fall, but as we approach Halloween, who doesn’t love an opportunity to dress up in a costume?

The Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire starts each year in August and runs all the way to Halloween. Every weekend you can enjoy this massive event filled with games, entertainers, and a variety of vendors.

Watch the jousts, enjoy a smoked turkey drumstick, and get a taste of the olden days.

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm

With Autumn being the last chance to harvest, visiting a farm is a great way to get into the spirit of the season. It’s not just fruits and vegetables here, though. It’s called Cherry Crest Adventure Farm because this venue is filled with fun activities for all ages. Visit the animals, navigate your way through a corn maze, or enjoy live entertainment like pig races and musicians. You will find something for everyone to enjoy here.

Try something new this Fall and see if you can find a few new places to add to your locales that you look forward to visiting each year.
