Here in Lake County, we eagerly welcome the fall season… not just for the beautiful weather it brings, but for the wealth of seasonal activities to enjoy right here at home!
Take a look at today’s blog to see how you can make this your favorite fall ever, right here from Lake County.
Mount Dora Bicycle Festival
One of the premier ways to kick off your fall fun here in Lake County is to partake in a beloved annual tradition: the Mount Dora Bicycle Festival! Now in its 43rd year, the festival is a must-do event for bicyclists (of which our area has many!) as well the family, friends, and spectators who love to cheer them on around town. Whether or not you’re riding during this year’s event (which kicks off on October 5th), you’ll be able to enjoy sweet destinations all around town, such as the beloved Yalaha Bakery which promises German and Old-World confections.
Fall Maze & Pumpkin Patch at Lake Catherine Blueberry Farm
Visiting the pumpkin patch is a classic fall pastime, so why not enjoy this experience with the family? Head to Lake Catherine Blueberry Farm in Groveland to enjoy an open-air scavenger hunt, delicious food truck fare, and, of course, a pumpkin patch for picking out your seasonal goodies. This event takes place on October 6th.
Don’t let the name deceive you—while Santa’s Farm offers Christmastime fun, too, it’s just as worthy of a visit during the fall! All October long you will be able to enjoy a twistingly fun Magical Maze, as well as zip-lines and even horse and pony rides! It’s the quintessential fall experience, located in Eustis.
Club Lake Plantation Fall Festival
At Apopka’s Club Lake Plantation Fall Festival, which is up and running throughout October, visitors will be able to enjoy diversions like train rides, corn mazes, and the whimsical sport of pumpkin chunkin’!
Scott’s Maze Adventure
Finally, don’t forget about Scott’s Maze Adventure. Located in Mount Dora and running through December 10th, this exciting challenge is perfect for families and friends who’d love to get lost in the twisting 7-acre maze (or, for simpler thrills, the 1-acre maze that is also onsite!). Either way, it’s a test of navigation that’s sure to have you laughing all afternoon.
We hope that today’s blog helps you find new ways to enjoy the season as a family! Be sure to share your own Lake County must-do’s in the comments below.
