SHOWING OFF THEIR FALL COLORS, trees line the river at Point State Park.

Looking for fun things to do in the fall?

The following places are perfect for friends or family!

Trax Farm in Finleyville has so much to do no matter what age you are. At Trax, starting September 26 until October 26, there are evening hayrides where you get to experience the beautiful scenery of the farm, as well as pick your own pumpkins and complete a maze.

In addition to the hayrides, Trax has festivals in the fall as well. The festivals start September 29 and continue through October 28 on Saturdays and Sundays.

There are activities you can participate in such as the rock wall and bungee jumper. There is a petting zoo, too! And you can’t forget the best part about any festival–food trucks.

The Fall Flower Show at Phipps Conservatory opens on Saturday, Oct. 13. You can go on a tour of their 125-year history through the display of nature.

If you want to try cider, then you need to check out the grand opening of Threadbare Cider. They’ll officially open the doors to their North Side cider house and tasting room on Friday, Oct. 20. When you visit, you are also allowed to go on a tour of Johnny Appleseed, the Pittsburgher John Chapman.
