Get Excited About Fall in the Treasure Valley

Summer is quickly approaching its conclusion, and while many of you might feel sad, the good news is fall in the Treasure Valley is equally as enjoyable.

If you don’t already have a pumpkin-spice-themed itinerary, here are some of the fun fall Treasure Valley events and activities to look forward to.

If you have kids, they’ll love this activity. Going to the pumpkin patch and finding the perfect pumpkin for carving is a family-friendly event that people of all ages enjoy. A handful of pumpkin patches and farms call the Treasure Valley home. And wherever you are in the Valley, be it Meridian, Boise, Nampa, or Star, there’s bound to be a pumpkin patch close by. Some of the favorites in the area include The Farmstead, The Berry Ranch, and Jeremy’s Pumpkins.

Celebrate Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest only happens during one part of the year, and a handful of downtown Boise restaurants go all out to celebrate the German holiday. Whether you attend a formal event or just take part in your own bier tour with a group of friends, you can’t go wrong. Check out the local event calendars, grab your stein, and head to any of the local Oktoberfest celebrations this fall.

Spooky Season Throughout the Treasure Valley

Once summer comes to an official close, many of us are ready for the Halloween season. Yes, it is a season for many people, not just one day out of the year. Whether you like to celebrate by getting out and about or just want to cozy up and watch some good old-fashioned scary movies, you can do it all in the Treasure Valley.

For the adventurous, you can’t get any better than the Old Idaho State Penitentiary and their Frightened Felons events for the family and adults. If you’re more of a scary movie watcher and have a taste for the classics, check out Boise Classic Movies’ upcoming event schedule. All October and weeks leading up to Halloween they traditionally show classic horror movies at the Egyptian Theatre.

Boise State Football Kicks Off

There’s no way that you could have forgotten about BSU football, but it would be a mistake not to include the Broncos on this list. It’s about that time, and after almost an entire year of waiting, football is back on the blue.

If you’ve never been, BSU games are an event for the whole family with Albertson’s Stadium comfortably hosting thousands of cheering fans. Most of the home games on the schedule are during the first part of the season, so be sure to plan ahead and scoop up some tickets.
