Best Festivals this Fall for Families in Los Angeles and Orange County

Other places have a season called fall; LA has something more like summer with school and a pumpkin aisle at Trader Joe's. Of course, the beauty of an endless summer that fades gently into Halloween or Thanksgiving—usually right up until that guy in the red suit arrives—is that summer festivals keep right on going, all the way through September and October. Check out some of our favorite annual faux fall festivals, from Labor Day through Day of the Dead.
