IT'S PUMPKIN and APPLE PICKING TIME!

IT'S PUMPKIN and APPLE PICKING TIME!

Gina Giordan

THE WANNA SHOW HAS THE WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE ON PUMPKIN PICKING CLOSE TO NYC!  

The Fall season is here!  The season officially changes September, 22.  By mid October, the kids are back and settled into their new school routine.  Those summer work hours are a distant memory and most folks are back in the office working five days a week.  

You may recall, the moment you transitioned from Summer to Fall, as you stepped outside and the brisk chilly air hit you in the face.  Instantly reminding you that it's time to layer up and winter is just around the corner!  

Despite the chill in the air, the transition from summer to the fall season is truly a magical time of the year.  One of our favorites!  The leaves are changing colors and the local farms open their doors to celebrate the harvest!  

If you live in the NYC there are several local farms that are open seven days a week and offer apple, pumpkin picking, food, live music and several seasonal activities for all ages!  

The Wanna curated a list of local NY farms below that offer pumpkin picking, hayrides and so much more! 

Enjoy!
