SPOKANE, Wash. — It all happened so fast. One minute we were battling the 90-degree heat. Now, it’s rainy and chilly.
This weather is enough to get you in the fall spirit. Are you ready for pumpkin patches, scary movies and hot cider?
Here are our top five things to do in the Spokane area this fall.
1. Picking apples, pumpkins and more
If you haven’t been to Green Bluff, fall is the perfect time to go! There are so many farms that offer apple picking, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and hay rides.
Some places serve breakfast and lunch. This makes it easy to make a day out of your trip. There are also breweries and wineries to stop by as well!
2. Get your scare on
Starting Oct. 1, Silverwood transforms into Scarywood. There are ghouls and goblins around every corner. The entire park is decorated for Halloween!
Scarywood is open every Thursday through Saturday in October.
Thursday hours are 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday hours run from 7 p.m. to midnight.
3. Check out the beautiful fall colors
One of the best parts of fall is when the leaves change colors! You can check them out at any of Spokane’s beautiful parks, including Finch Arboretum, Manito Park and along the Centennial Trail.
Check out Visit Spokane’s fall colors page.
Fall colors started turning in early September, but expect them to peak between Oct. 5 and Oct. 12.
4. Get your drink on
Fall isn’t just for Halloween. It’s also time for Oktoberfest!
Spokane Oktoberfest is held at CenterPlace Regional Event Center Sept. 27-29.
You’ll find German food, dancing, games and, of course, BEER! There are both outdoor and indoor beer gardens.
You can buy tickets online or at the door.
5. Grab a cup of coffee
Coffee warms the soul during the fall and there are so many local shops to hit up in Spokane.
And of course, if you're a PSL fan, Starbucks has already started serving its famed Pumpkin Spice Latte.
