Its Fall Y’all!


It’s finally that time of year; the air is a little cooler and the leaves are changing color. It’s fall y’all!  Are you and your friends looking for some fun activities to do this fall? Well here are some options!

It’s Halloween time and spooky activities are everywhere. Dead Man’s Farm in Philadelphia, Fright Works in Powell, and Frightmare Manor in Morristown are all highly reviewed haunted houses. All these attractions open Friday, October 1st and will be open every weekend until Halloween.

“I love going to haunted houses to get super spooked,” Tressie Brown (12) said.

If scary wonders are not your thing, don’t fret, there is plenty more to do in Tennessee this fall! If sports are more your style, the SEC season has started, and the Tennessee Vols play every Saturday.

Their next game is October 2nd at noon against the Missouri Tigers. Even if you can’t go to the game, tailgating or bonfires are all fun ways to hang out with friends and family!

So you like TV but you’re not a sports fan? No worries, there are hundreds of Halloween movies for you to watch!

If you’re not sure what to watch, Tim Burton is renowned for his creepy claymation movies. His most popular Halloween-themed movies are Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, and Edward Scissor Hands.

If you are looking for a classically horrifying film, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Shining, Carrie, Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Halloween, and The Silence of The Lambs are classics for the Halloween season.

There are hundreds of watch options, making it hard to choose a favorite. 

“My favorite Halloween movie is Edward Scissor Hands because it’s like not scary but it’s still a good story,” Brown said.

What about arts and crafts? Obviously, you can carve a pumpkin for your front porch. You can also decorate your yard or even inside your house with Walmart bag ghosts.

Another super easy DIY is lighting some long white candles and let them drip freely, then placing them in dark-colored bottles for a spooky effect.

“Me and my friend painted little ceramic pumpkins and wooden skull heads. We put them in our room for decoration,” Brown said.

Fall is the time of year to get together with others and partake in fun activities. Whether that be haunted houses, hayrides, movie nights, football games, or crafts, there’s something for everyone this season.
