It is officially the time where the seasons are changing and the weather is getting cooler. Or in other terms, “it’s fall y’all.” At Pitt-Greensburg, there have been numerous activities going on this month such as Oktoberfest, pumpkin carving, or the Village Halloween party. In addition to the fall themed fun on campus, there are other festivities that took place off campus that were accessible to students.
Walks Through Parks: Around this time of year, the trees turn from green to beautiful colors such as bright red, orange, or yellow. A way to view these mesmerizing sights is to visit walking trails near campus and enjoy nature. It’s peaceful, relaxing, and it’s a great way to have a change of scenery from campus life. Some trails that are located around are Linn Run State Park, Mammoth Park, and St. Vincent Trail.
Ligonier Diamond: In Ligonier, PA, The Diamond is a famous hot spot for the fall season. All the stores located here decorate and get into the spirit.It looks like something straight out of a Hallmark movie or “Gilmore Girls.” They either sell fall clothing or sell fall themed food and drinks which attracts many people to the site. It is a fun place to visit to hang out with friends or to spend time with family as fall time has arrived.
Pumpkin Patch: A common fall activity that is favored is going to a pumpkin patch. These serve well for people who like to carve pumpkins or paint fun images on them. While shopping for pumpkins, there may have been apple cider served, caramel apples, or donuts depending on which pumpkin patch you traveled to. But, no matter where you went, there were sure to be fun memories made. Some patches around here included “Pleasant Unity Pumpkin Patch”, “Palmer’s Farm”, and “Cairn’s Pumpkin Farm”.
