The weather is coming to a cool and we can start going outside without melting! Tons of events are taking place this season and this article is is here to inform the details.

Within Petrack Park in Pahrump, Nevada, which is about 45 minutes outside of Las Vegas, has held an annual fall festival for over 50 years. In the beginning, it was a small festival where a couple hundred people came together to have fun, share the harvest and have barbeque.

Now, it’s a 4 day festival with a parade, rodeos, and rides. It starts on Thursday, September 27 and ends on Sunday, September 30. Admission is free for the festival itself and entertainment but there is a fee for the rides and the rodeo. The rodeo fee is $15. You can buy tickets or a wristband for the rides. Prices Vary. Gather some friends and take a fun road trip to the annual fall festival.

If that is a little too far out the way, don’t worry! There are all kinds of fun things to do here in Vegas. One of which is going to the Gilcrease Orchard Pumpkin Patch. It opens on Saturday, September 29 and will be open through October every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from 7am to 2pm.

There you can pick from a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and obviously pumpkins. The Gilcrease Orchard is also famous for their apple cider. It is naturally sweet and made from apples they grow there at the orchard. Gilcrease Orchard is located at:
