This post is part of my blogtober celebration, my month-long blog party about all things creepy and Halloween-y! If you've got a fall post, make sure to add it to the Linky so I can check it out!
I've been interviewing bloggers, mostly about what they do in the fall time and Halloween traditions, and I thought it would be fun to share what I do in the fall in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. Yes, that's really what it's called, and a knob (hahaha) is smaller than a mountain but much bigger than a hill. We sit 600 feet above Louisville. It's not technically a town since we don't have our own government system, but it's a township. There are quite a few people here, but the whole township takes up the whole county, so we're just really spaced out so it seems like there's no one here.
Near the beginning of October, the town down the hill has this big event called Harvest Homecoming, and it's basically the whole city shuts down because of it. Really. The YMCA (where my evening job is) is closed because it's downtown in the middle of it. Basically it's a block festival with weird homemade crafts, iffy local bands, and lots and lots of food. Everyone beelines it to the Boy Scout roasted corn or old peoples' club apple dumplings. It's a catfight over which is better. (Corn, obvs.)
The left is my and my momma (she's my favorite) hanging out at the winery in the crazy-lit sunlight, and the right is the orchards (winesap apples that day. they are delicious).
It's super gorgeous here in the autumn season, and there are trees EVERYWHERE, and they're all changing now, and I absolutely love driving down the hill on the way to work.
And just for fun, here's me and mom last week trying to take a selfie in the cardboard cutout farmer faces we were too short for in the first place. It was ridiculous, and we had a whole bottle of wine before that, and people were staring at us. It was awesome.
Do you all have any fall-musts in your town? What do you like most about the season?
