October Fall Festivals on the South Shore

One of the best things about living in New England are the festivals.  It seems like there are festivals for everything: the Fluff festival, the apple pie festival, the blueberry festival, art festivals, pumpkin festivals etc.  You name it- we celebrate it.

If there isn’t a festival going on, we make our own.  But that’s a post for another day.

The best part of any festival is the food.  Usually there is a fantastic variety of treats (especially if a specific food being celebrated) and some great local vendors sharing their goodies.   Y’all know I go hungry! Tip: don’t forget to bring cash!  I’ve never been to a festival that took credit cards.

Lately, I’ve seen fall festivals popping up all over the place: flyers, Facebook, my mom’s group on Meetup.  I wanted to keep a running list of what’s happening and I decided to share it with you!

    I miss living in New England but I have been gone so long I think I have been climatized to warmer weather. Nice post.
