With Fall right around the corner, you are going to need to start planning your Halloween costumes and getting your spices in a row. Fall is many children’s favorite time of year thanks to pumpkins, candy, and bonfires. In the city of Boise, the colors change, and the air turns crisp and cool. During Fall, there is more than enough to fill your calendar.
Linder Farms Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch
Enjoying a corn maze is the perfect way to start Fall correctly. Linder Farms will make sure your day is spent right. As the official corn made of the Boise State Broncos, this made is the perfect place to get lost, take a hayride, pick a pumpkin, pet animals, and more.
Idaho Botanical Gardens
The month of October is the perfect time to visit the botanical gardens. During the Halloween season, you’ll have access to the best scarecrow stroll in the state. Different scarecrows will represent local communities and organizations. You’ll have a chance to vote for the best while also seeing everything else the botanical garden has to offer.
Fall Boise Parade of Homes
If you like looking at homes, then Fall is the perfect time for you to get out of the house. The Fall Boise Parade of Homes lasts from September until October. Each weekend, you will be able to see new constructions and other gorgeous homes through an event that has been sponsored by the Building Contractors Association of Southwestern Idaho since 1956. If you are looking to build a new home, this might be perfect for you.
See Spot Walk
This race is perfect if your family likes or even has a furry friend. It’s a 5K and Fun Run that’s often held in Julia Davis Park. You’ll be able to watch and participate in a 5K, 1-mile walk, contests, demonstrations, and more. You can bring pets and even see adoptable pets through the Idaho Humane Society.
Fall Harvest Festival
This is another event held at the spectacular Idaho Botanical Gardens. By attending this family-friendly festival, you can enjoy beer, wine, and food while voting on your favorite scare grow and enjoying live music. There are activities for children as well as adults.
Though not in Boise, this event is worth the trip. Taking place in the Fall each year, head over to Sandpoint, for three days of bands, microbrews, wines, and ciders. Though the festival might be geared towards adults, children are allowed, and special events are planned to keep them entertained.
Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic
Launch into September and Autumn with a balloon festival. Five days of free activities from August 28th to September 1st make this the best, and most colorful, start to the fall season. You will get the chance to participate in activities, attend the nite glow balloon show, and watch the balloons take off each day.
