The autumn season is peaking in the city with all of the golden leaves on the trees, and chilly mornings are becoming more and more common. Fall is definitely in the air with winter not far behind, so before the season is over make sure you get out to the pumpkin patches and festivals to celebrate this wonderful time of year.
