Well, it’s about that time - fall is in the air! Autumn leaves begin changing colors, the smell of pumpkin spice is in the air, and the sights and sounds and scents of the fall begin permeating the atmosphere all over Smyrna and the rest of Atlanta. Here at Alta at Jonquil, we’re huge fans of the fall time, so we’ve decided to blog about it.
There’s so much to love about fall - but most of all, we love the fall events in Smyrna that happen to carry us through the season. Festivals abound, Atlanta is a-buzz with community fun, and there’s lots of adventure to be had. Here are just a few of our favorite things coming up this fall in Georgia!
Number one, the Fall Jonquil Festival. Anybody around Smyrna knows that this festival is what fall is all about. Now, right before Halloween, get your fall pride on with this classic tradition right here near Alta at Jonquil. This year’s event runs on October 28 and 29, and it will feature over 175 hand-made arts and crafts booths for us to partake in. Mark your calendars, and start getting excited now!
You’ve been peach picking here in Georgia... But it wouldn’t be fall without some good old-fashioned apple picking! We’re fans of Harry Stacy Farms just a short drive west. But there are plenty of places to get fresh picked apples this fall.
The Smyrna Fresh Produce Market is another favorite. For another Saturday or two, September 16th and September 30th, it’s your time to take advantage of all the fresh produce you can get your hands on. Say hello to fall baking with some of the best produce of this year’s harvest, all by local farmers and growers. Speaking of harvest...
Harvest parties and Halloween happenings… everyone knows that October is a great time for costumes, candy, and harvest goods. Before October 31st, stay tuned for more details on parties that will help us all to get spooky and silly this fall. Autumn is the perfect time to show your Halloween pride in the community!
