Autumn, Fall, Thanksgiving, Colors. What is your Family Fall Tradition?

  1. International Balloon Festival – October, Albuquerque, N.M.

    Locals call it the “Enchanted Sunrise”. It has happened every October since 1972. It began with only 13 participants. Today, more than 500 balloons fill the sky. Also known as the “Balloon Fiesta”, it is the largest ballooning event in the world. Unlike other balloon events, guests are allowed to walk among the hot air balloons and speakers with the aviators.

  2. Paul Bunyan Days – Labor Day Weekend,Fort Bragg, California Image title

                This festival honors the famous life-logger, Paul Bunyan and the community’s history. The 3 day festival includes a logging show                 competition, ax throwing, chainsaw bucking, hand chopping, parades, tricycle races, an ugly dog contest, and a water fight.

            3.  Mischief Night - Halloween

                    Don’t like your neighbors? Well, here is your chance to play pranks on them. On this night, neighbors play pranks on one another                     usually in the form of toilet papering or egging houses, and rearranging gates and garden gnomes. Like Halloween, the origins are                     unknown but the earliest evidence of a similar occurrence was observed more than two centuries ago.

                4. Punkin Chunkin

                    Feeling frustrated? Feel the need to throw something? Here is your chance. Starting in 1986, it is now a National Event. Taking place                     every November, contestants can launch, throw, catapult and slingshot a pumpkin. Also included in the event is a chili cook-off. Just                     watch the skies for falling pumpkins!!

                5. Bridge Day Festival

                        Feeling brave? Adventurous? Off the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia every October, hundreds of daredevils jump from the                         265 meter-high bridge. They are called BASE jumpers. BASE stands for building, antenna, span and earth. BASE jumpers are those                         who leap with rapid deployment parachutes from those apparatuses.   I only have one question: WHY?

                    6. Road Kill Cook-Off

                       The RoadKill Cook-off is one of the region’s most fun and exciting annual events. In years past, the Food Network, the Travel                         Channel and the Discovery Channel have all covered this wild and offbeat festival! Looking for a new recipe to cook for your                         family? Want to sample some exotic dishes like squirrel gravy over biscuits, teriyaki-marinated bear or deer sausage? This is the                         place to be!

                    7.  Wisconsin State Cow Chip Throw and Festival - September

                        Still feel the need to throw something in frustration? For those of you that don't know, cow chips are dry, odorless pieces of cow                         dung. This festival is held every year in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. It includes a cow chip parade, a cow chip-throwing contest,                         crafts, food (what kind of food?), and of course, beer! The current cow chip-throwing record stands at 248 feet.

                   8.  National Hollerin' Contest

                        The National Hollerin' Contest began in 1969 to save this endangered form of communication from extinction. The event now                         includes a BBQ cook off and live music. Do your kids like to yell and make noise? Now they can.
