Do you feel it? That slight coolness in the air these last several mornings?

This can only mean one thing. Fall is here in Levy County. And while it may be hard to believe, soon, the temperature will start to decrease little by little and it will be time to break out those light jackets or sweaters.

I always look forward to when the fall rolls around. Perhaps this is because of all the excitement it seems to bring to our area every year. Not only are high school, college and pro sports well underway, but there are also tons of festivals that seem to occur.

In addition to watching football, I would say my other favorite activity around this time is checking out the festivals in and around the county. While there are some I have yet to see, there are a few I have attended in the past and will be trying to make again this year.

Of course, there are also a few holidays that take place during the fall, as well. I’d have to say, I don’t really go all out for Halloween like I used to when I was kid. But, my aunt still enjoys throwing a party for the holiday, and all of us – some dressed in costume and some not – will usually come over for a fun night of socializing and eating.

Then we have Thanksgiving. A holiday where we allow ourselves for one day – maybe even more – to divulge in delicious, home-cooked favorites. This just might be my favorite fall holiday.

There are many reasons to love the fall. From football to festivals, the list goes on. So, if you’re looking for something to do these next few months, get out and explore what this area has to offer.
