Fall events for the family

“Fall” in Love with these South Florida Kids’ Activities

Halloween is only days away, the air temperature is finally below 90 degrees and your Facebook feed is getting flooded with pumpkin patch photos. It must be fall in South Florida!

Boca moms love fall events. Let’s be honest—many of us are transplants from the Northeast, and we crave the change in season (and fashion.) Whether it’s a fall festival with hay rides and apple cider or an opportunity to trick-or-treat with the kids at a local shopping center, you better believe Boca moms will be there with their kids in costume and Jimmy Choo boots on.

I personally like to ramp up to Halloween events, and embrace the fall traditions with my family that I’ve found are really well done in Palm Beach County. Here are my top picks:

Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market Annual Fall Festival – Sept. 26-Nov. 1  

Bedner’s (10066 Lee Rd., Boynton Beach, 561/733-5490) opens its doors every year for a huge fall festival in Boynton Beach. But, you better get there early (especially on the weekends,) and bring a hat and sunscreen. Take photos with your family in the largest pumpkin patch in town, open every day but Tuesday. Enjoy a hay ride and get lost in their corn maze. Kids love Bedner’s petting zoo, bounce house and homemade ice cream. And parents will drool over the cider doughnuts and fresh lemonade.

Oktoberfest at the American German Club – Oct. 16-18

Discover the best of Germany, from traditional to modern, at this weekend-long Oktoberfest event in Lantana. Live music, German food, beer and more are showcased with authentic style at the American German Club (5111 Lantana Rd., Lake Worth, 561/967-6464.) There are carnival rides for the kids ($20.00 wristband for unlimited access) and an indoor Hofbrau Festhaus for mom and dad. Dress the whole family up to really get into the Oktoberfest spirit!

Boca Boo Days – Oct. 16-31

Talk about a cornucopia of event options in our fair city! Boca Boo Days has something for everyone from Haunted Houses at Sugar Sand Park to spooky canopy tours at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. Check out the full calendar of events for your family on their cleverly scary website,

Have a ‘boo-tiful’ fall Boca Moms!
