It’s that time again for pumpkin spice lattes, fuzzy boots and warm cardigans. Well it is still a little warm for the boots and cardigans but you know what we mean. FALL is here. The leaves are turning, people are planning their Halloween costumes, envisioning the pumpkins they will carve and planning their Netflix movies for the inevitable cooler rainy evenings.
The DC Metro area is preparing in its own way for the season. We have repeated ad nauseam just how beautiful our area gets in the autumn. the gorgeous colors, the crisp air, the whole atmosphere of the city and the surrounding “burbs”…intoxicating, delicious, romantic, moody in that artistic way. And we want you to enjoy every drop of dripping jewels our area has to offer.
Food is one way to enjoy a culture, a city and a season. DC VegFest is on of the festivals that ill offer yummy AND healthy food and entertainment for adults AND for children. Then we have Taste of William County for food fun and live music for the whole family. And there is also Taste of DC in the nation’s capital with the Capitol as your backdrop. Or you can go to the Centreville Food Truck Rally taking place at the Centreville Bible church. Guys, it can’t get better than a bunch of food trucks all at the same place offering food. But wait… for those of you that want to have some fun without the young ones, go on to Fort Washington for some Das Best Oktoberfest.
Fall is the season for reading. And the Library of Congress is sponsoring an even the National Book Festival where you can enjoy some readings, book signings, panels, poetry performances and a kids zone where children can meet characters from their favorite books. For some book filled day to Fall for The Book event in Fairfax Virginia and Enjoy readings, performances and exhibitions from authors from all around the world.
For those that are sporty and want to mix in some fun with their fitness we suggest the Color Fun Fest 5K. If you don’t know what this is then we HIGHLY suggest you participate. We won’t give it away but it is very colorful. Of course being a flower shop we do love things that are colorful. It is CRAZY fun too. Just go to it. You won’t be disappointing. And for a meaningful fun/fitness time participate in the Washington Prevent Cancer 5K Walk/Run taking place at the National Park.
And if you do not want o go out and enjoy some POMO, then stay home, curl up with a good book or a good movie. Make sure you get some beautiful jewel toned flowers fro your local florist and put it somewhere you can easily see and enjoy the peace that only fall can give.
