If fall is here, and it is, then it must be time for all that Halloween stuff. We have Halloween in Hershey www.halloweeninhershey.com on weekends. Jason’s Woods also on weekends thru October www.jasonswoods.com 7-10 pm. If you are plannign on staying over be sure to have reservations because October is always busy, especially on weekends. When I was growing up the only thing I liked about Halloween was the candy costumes were secondary.
I really don’t think I could live where you don’t experience season changes. Fall is always a great reprieve from the heat of summer and with it comes certain smells, colors and things to do. I was talking with a friend the other day and we both said we were seeing the first signs of trees changing color, for now it is just the changes in greens but it will be followed rapidly with the oranges, reds and browns that make for a beautiful picture. As far a food is concerned it is the apple selection at the farmers market, and pumpkins galore. A farmers market visit is a must in the fall. Ours are Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
About 3 years ago an innkeeper got the idea to give a free night to vets as a thank you for serving, and now it is a national program. This year we will give the night of November 10 to any vet (active or retired) for free. We have many other business’ that are offering specials to the veterans also so you might want to stay longer and enjoy some of that local flavor. I have 2 rooms left and would welcome you.
