It’s that time of year again, where pumpkins & spices take over our favorite foods, crisp air wafts into our noses, and trees celebrate the diversity of colors that mother nature effortlessly produces.
You guessed it, i’m talking about Fall! We can say goodbye to the humid days of summer and hello to Pennsylvania’s perfect bonfire, hayride, & soccer season. Newtown and it’s neighbors offer a myriad of traditional & unique Fall celebrations. I’ve selected few festivals to spice up your first weekend in the new season.
