Games, refreshments, entertainment and row and rows of pumpkins. It won't be long before pumpkin patches around the state open in preparation for Halloween.

In North Dakota, fall foliage begins showing us in early to mid-September and reaches its peak by the end of the month or early October depending on location. Visitors use this time to tour areas of heavy forest growth like the Turtle Mountains or river valleys. In the Red River Valley, long thick tree rows take on amazing hues. If you missed this fall's change, don't worry, there's always next September.
