5 Fall Activities To Do Before Winter Comes
By Zoe Verelli
My fellow YA Media readers, I bear some bad news today: the lovely and vibrant season of fall is almost over. It’s a fact.
And let’s be honest, we’ve all heard the rumors that winter 2017 is predicted to be one of the harshest and coldest yet. But don’t panic because I’ve also got some good news for you folks.
There’s still a way for you to keep the spirit of this brief, ever so hued season alive. I’ve found some of the best last minute activities you can rack in with your family, friends, or romantic partner. Even better news is that I’m willing to share this awesome list with you!
So, here it goes:
5. APPLE OR PUMPKIN PICKING
I’ll admit, this may be an obvious one but there are still so many people out there who haven’t experienced the fun of apple or pumpkin picking.
There’s a reason why fall is called harvest season, so take advantage of the juicy, delicious apples and big, fresh pumpkins before it’s too late. I promise, it’s worth it.
During the fall, Mount-Royal Park is so picturesque. You can take a stroll and bear witness to the change of season, or even organize a picnic amid a field of tall, colorful trees.
And I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet… it’s completely free!
3. THE INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL
Founded in 1998, it is also known as the “Rencontres Internationales du Documentaire de MontrÃ©al,” this festival takes place from November 10th to November 20th, 2016.
The RIDM presents the best Canadian and International documentaries of the year and is especially appealing to those who are interested in cultural, social, and political issues.
2. THE GREAT PUMPKIN BALL
This particular event also takes place until October 31st, 2016 at the Montreal Botanical Garden.
Welcoming those of all ages, this exhibition showcases all sizes and forms of pumpkins and squashes that have been specially decorated by students and visitors.
In fact, it also includes a detective show starring PÃ©po Citrouille, and an outdoor play area for children knows as the Little Monsters Courtyard.
1. GARDENS OF LIGHT
This special event takes place until October 31st, 2016 at the Montreal Botanical Garden. Individuals of all ages are invited to visit both their Chinese-inspired and Japanese-inspired garden. Each tell a separate story about culture and tradition through the use of multi-coloured lanterns and decorations. It truly is a sight to see. You don’t want to miss out on this unique experience.
So if you haven’t already participated in these 5 activities this fall, you’ve still got time. We at YA Media take full credit for the fun you’ll have!
