Pumpkin Spice Lattes (PSLs for those of us who wear leggings year round) have returned!  The kids are back in school. The NFL football season officially kicks off tomorrow, and Labor Day is soon to be a distant memory.  Fall is here!

Autumn is a season to be celebrated, and the best way to do that is at the Saratoga Harvest Fest on September 26th.  Fall always seems to have the best seasonal products, and of course, the best seasonal craft beers.

Here are some ideas to celebrate the cooler weather:


Make homemade apple pie – Whether you picked the apples yourself, or bought them at Hannaford, nothing beats apple pie

Go for a hike – There is a reason people come from all over the United States, and the world, to see the North East this time of year.  It’s beautiful!

Build a scarecrow – The days are getting shorter and it’ll soon be dark out when most of us get home at the end of the day.  Why not put a large, looming, human shaped figure by your front door to greet you?




Go to Fall Festivals – We’ll be at Saratoga Harvest Fest to try some seasonal beers and celebrate!  Join us on the 26th at the Saratoga Race Course.  Bring your family!  Tickets are available here.
