Good evening everyone!
I am back from Door County already, and boy was it an awesome trip. Door County is beautiful in the summer, but it is absolutely breathtaking in the fall. We just happened to make it in time for the peak days of leaf-changing. The trees all around were in shades of crimson, yellow, and orange with some green still mixed in. The ground was littered with colorful leaves! What a gorgeous sight!
So I thought Door County would be pretty empty because most people are back at work and the summer is over. Oh how wrong I was. Door County is filled with fall tourists, and it was especially filled with people for Pumpkin Patch Festival in Egg Harbor. Everyone that we talked to asked if we were in town for Pumpkin Patch Festival, so apparently it was a big deal in Door County.
Of course we had to check it out. It was crazy awesome! The whole main street of Egg Harbor was blocked off to traffic and filled with people bundled in fall coats carrying giant bags of popcorn and caramel apples. There were tents scattered throughout all of the streets selling jewelry, clothing, blankets, and almost anything imaginable. There were rides for the children, a storyteller, and a live band (which just happened to be singing country music when we were there…a great day for me!!). And what Wisconsin festival would be complete without a tent for brats and beer?
We treated ourselves to fresh caramel apples and enjoyed the country band for awhile before leaving Pumpkin Patch Festival. I would really like to return next year to experience it all over again.
