Throughout the country, as leaves change colors and the temperatures drop, farmers prepare for fall harvest and its bounty of apples, pumpkins, grapes corn, pecans, and cranberries. Meanwhile, day-trippers pack up their cars make their way to celebratory harvest festivals where the attractions include wandering through corn mazes, participating in baking competitions, and picking pumpkins. Some of the best festivals even feature live music, wine and beer tastings, and their very own parades. These are our top picks for the harvest festivals to attend this fall.
