Celebrating the Start of Fall in Conroe, Texas
Conroe and Houston residents love to take in the cooler weather of early fall and often find themselves at fall-themed celebrations throughout September and beyond. If you’re new to Conroe, or will shortly be relocating to a new Conroe apartment, here are a few activities you can consider as you get to know your new home.
Go to a Conroe Pumpkin Festival
There’s pumpkin spice everything in just about all the stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and grocery stores, but actually going to a pumpkin festival is much cooler than just drinking a pumpkin spice drink. With the P-6 Farms annual corn maze & pumpkin festival, you can have fun with pumpkins, Halloween-themed events, and multiple corn mazes.
The Community Impact page for Conroe and Montgomery explains further:
“The festival includes farm animals, a candy cannon, the cow train, a tractor hayride, tug of war and pumpkin picking. After dark on Saturdays in October, visitors can participate in “Field of Screams” activities. Farmer Bo’s famous brisket and other fall food will be available for purchase.”
Tickets range from free for kids aged two and younger and from $10.95 to $15.95 for everyone else.
Get to Know the Real Texas
If you’re not a native of Texas but are new to the area, you’re probably aware of the pride Texans take in their heritage and the storied history of their state, and there are two events in the fall that are ideal for expanding your cultural horizons.
One activity is the Texian Heritage Festival, which is a celebration of the native history of Texas with reenactments from Native American dancers and other performances. There are also fun activities like sack races, tug-of-war contests, and roping. The cost is minimal at just $5 for adults and no admission charge for kids 12 and under.
Another fall activity that can help you explore the history of Texas is the Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival. The 28th annual festival will occur from October 13 to 15 with live music, tons of food vendors, and loads of Cajun food. You can score a weekend pass for $20, which is a great deal if you plan to attend for more than one day.
Go Find some Fall Foliage
Even though there are loads of jokes about states like Texas where much of the year is unbearably hot and the rest of the year is just mildly cool, there are some amazing places to go see the leaves change in Texas.
If you’re up for a road trip, Trips to Discover offers some excellent parks to visit around the state. Lake Bob Sandlin State Park is an ideal place to go if you’re in East Texas. If you like fishing, this park is an ideal place to visit.
“…the lake here is the focal point of the park, so fishermen should enjoy the colorful views along the banks while fishing for bass and catfish.”
