Are you wondering how to celebrate fall in Florida? Fall is a funny season here in Florida. For most people, the fall season is filled with intense autumnal shades of maple leaves, cooler weather, and everything cozy. It’s a little different here in the sunshine state.
We definitely have everything cozy covered, if you count cranking your air conditioning down and snuggling under a blanket while you watch Hocus Pocus! I think this fall in Florida meme says it all.
All jokes aside, Florida does have a fall season, but it’s just a little bit different than what the rest of the nation usually experiences during this time of year. You can bet your bottom dollar that you’ll see fall decor for sale in all the stores, pumpkin-flavored treats will be everywhere, and Disney World will be decorated for Halloween (for Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party) in early August.
In addition to these fall-inspired festivities, there are lots of fun activities that you can participate in right here in the Tampa Bay area! Depending on where you’re living or visiting in Florida, you might find this list of fall festivals to be helpful.
