The summer may be over, but Colchester has many delightful activities to enjoy during the crisp, sunny days of autumn. Boating enthusiasts still have time to get out on the lake. For leaf peepers, outdoor activities are a wonderful way to get “up close and personal” with our beautiful fall foliage. Whether you’re biking the Causeway, walking at Colchester Pond or hiking Niquette Bay State Park, there are many places to view the natural beauty that surrounds Colchester.
Shop Claussen’s for colorful mums for holiday decorating. Local farm stands offer pumpkins for carving spooky Jack-O-Lanterns to greet trick-or-treaters; and now is a perfect time to pick juicy apples at Paul Mazza’s Farm. Sam Mazza’s famous cider donuts are a delicious way to re-energize after exploring their Corn Maze. You might want to take a few with you when you enter in case you wind up staying longer than anticipated! All are memorable ways to spend an afternoon.
Of course, a stop at our local Mead Hall for a tasting (they are located on Hercules Drive) or dinner with friends at one of our local restaurants would make a convivial ending to a fun-filled fall day in Colchester.
With Halloween not far off, Parks & Recreation and Burnham Library are offering family events like Pumpkins in the Park, Needle Felting Pumpkins, and a Kid’s Halloween Party. Visit our website, colchestervt.gov for details; there’s plenty to do!
Autumn has arrived and Colchester has a lot to offer visitors and those lucky enough to call our town home.
