Fall is officially here! If you’re into spooky season and pumpkin spice, your time has come. The air is starting to get chillier and the leaves are starting to fall, but that also means that there are tons of great activities opening up that weren’t really available through the summer season. That includes things like pumpkin patches, haunted houses and many others. If you’re looking to get the most out of your Fall 2022 season here in Topeka, Kansas, then we’ve got a few ideas for you to consider checking out right here.

Apples & Pumpkins
Two of the best activities to experience in early fall, whether it be with the family or on a date or even just a fun activity with your roommates, is going to pick apples and/or pumpkins. The fall season is the perfect time of year for things like apples, apple cider and, of course, pumpkins. Rees Fruit Farm has your apples and cider covered, with the former being sold by the peck or bushel at their year-round market. Berry Hill UPick Farm and Gary’s Berries Pumpkin Patch are both great places to go pick out your pumpkins, and both have plenty of other great fall activities to experience as well.
Haunted Houses & More
October is the best month of the year to get scared. They don’t call it spooky season for nothing! There are plenty of great haunted attractions here in Topeka and beyond, including the Topeka Haunted Woods at Forest Park. Other great options include Fear Zone, Nightmare on the Boulevard and more.
Topeka Fall Fest
Finally, we wanted to make sure to touch base on Topeka Fall Fest, which will be hosted at the Vinewood and feature a ton of great fall-themed activities and fun for the whole family. Presented by local businesses and NPOs, you’ll be available to enjoy a craft and vendor fair, listen to live music, eat at food trucks, learn about health & wellness and, of course, experience all of the childhood classics like face painting, craft stations, trunk or treat, pumpkin decorating, petting zoo and so much more.
However you decide to spend your fall this year, we simply hope you enjoy yourselves and stay safe. Happy fall from all of us here at Briggs!
