Around Kansas, fall is the best season of the year. The weather becomes gorgeous, the leaves are turning, college football is back in full swing and all seems right with the world. There are a lot of things about fall that I think about all year with great anticipation.
I was curious if anyone has any activities they look forward to each fall. Here are mine:
The Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival
Held in Winfield, Kansas every year for the last 45 years, this is a great time to get together with old friends, camp, drink some beers and hear some great blue grass music. I've been attending since 2001, and it is always a unique and fun time.
My favorite sport and one that I look forward to every year. I enjoy following all the story lines and twists and turns that happen throughout the season.
Halloween is my absolute favorite event of the year and I celebrate every day of October leading up to it. Around my house we do extensive decorations and queue up tons of scary movies, put serious time into our costumes and cap it off with Dr. McKivnak's Fortress of Horrortude: Falloween Spooktacular. An annual Halloween party hosted by Dr. McKivnak — a shadowy, enigmatic character that seems to only show up at my house once a year on Halloween.
Fall also brings out my favorite type of beers. There are a plethora of great Octoberfest beers and it is fun to try new ones every year and have a few of your favorites. I stay away from the ultra-pumpkiny beers that seem to always rear their ugly heads around this time though.
