October 24, 2016

Fall has come and it is now the perfect time to grab a pair of boots, bask in the occasional cool breeze, and of course drink pumpkin spice lattes. Fall is the time of year most girls look forward to, not only because of the cute, cozy outfits, but because of all the fall festivities offered. Here is a list of fun things to do during fall.

  1. Go to a pumpkin patch!

Pumpkin patches are the perfect place to take cute fall photos with friends, and scout for the perfectly spherical pumpkin. Hyde Park’s pumpkin patch runs all the way through October 30, and is the main location AHN girls go to scout for pumpkins.

2. Carve a pumpkin

Carving Pumpkins are a popular activity to do in fall with family and friends. Carving can be a hassle, so in order to make it easier here is a guide to carving a more successful pumpkin.

4. Go to Howl-O-Scream

Howl-O-Scream is the place to go for thrill seekers. Many AHN girls go in big groups to take advantage of the 4-Pack Deal where you can save up to $64 per person, and enjoy all the night has to offer from haunted houses to rides. This year’s theme is “Evil Encore”, complete with spooky theaters and performers. 

Gaby Hogan ’18 claims “Howl-O-Scream was so much fun and it’s less scary if you keep your eyes open because you freak yourself out when you just hear noises, but overall it is worth going every year!”
