So summer is over, the leaves are starting to change color, and soon it will begin to get cooler outside. So before we start dreading the coming winter, we can celebrate the beginning of fall!

Make sure you come out to the Saratoga Race Course on October 1st, from 1pm to 7pm, to celebrate the beginning of the fall season with Saratoga's Harvest Fest! If fall wasn't already your favorite season, then maybe the extremely wide variety of craft beers, wines, and ciders will be able to change your mind. Including all the different alcohol, there will also be an incredible amount of delicious food from local food trucks and vendors. If you get your tickets in advance, then you'll also be getting a commemoritive Saratoga Harvest Festival hat.

Of course, you could always get yourself a beer token as well. With those you'll be able to skip lines and save a dollar. I don't know about you, but that sounds pretty awesome to me, but make sure you mark your calendars, because these tokens will only be available on the 26th of September at midnight! I'm not saying camp out at your phone, but definitely keep it close, because the tokens will probably be going fast.

Of course, it wouldn't be much of a festival if there wasn't some live music, and you can bet there will be. From 1pm to 3pm, you'll be able to catch Rich Ortiz. 3:30pm to 5pm, it's the Dueling Pianos from Shake Rattle & Roll. Then, from 5:30pm to 7pm, it's The Audio Stars.

Alcohol + food + music. I'm not great at math, but I'm pretty sure that equals a good time.
