Although it still feels a bit steamy in New Jersey, the seasonal fall activities are well underway in the Garden State. Round up the gang for apple picking this weekend during the fall festival at Terhune Orchards, try your hand at apple cider making at Tenafly Nature Center, or get a jump start on Halloween during the Giant Pumpkin Carve at the Salem County Fairgrounds.
For even more late September fun, head to the annual Hoboken Fall Arts & Music Festival, Play Day in South Orange, or the Princeton Children's Book Festival. And don't forget to score your tickets to a few upcoming Halloween events, including these fall train rides and the brand-new RISE, a stunning display of 5,000 hand-carved pumpkins that arrives in NJ for the very first time this Halloween season.
