There may be just a slight drop in temperature and some cooling rain showers to mark the season, but you can still make the most of fall by checking out these fall festivals in West Palm Beach.
Bring the kids to the Fall Family Fun Fest at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium on Saturday, October 13 for cool, hand-on activities, fall-themed crafts, face painting, a petting zoo, live science demonstrations, carnival-style games, and more. This event is free with regular admission to the center, which is $17.95 for adults, $13.95 for children three through 12, $15.95 for seniors, and free for children under three and members.
From October 12 through 21, the American German Club of the Palm Beaches host two weekends of family fun with their annual Oktoberfest Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the second and third weeks of October. Enjoy the season with German meals, beers, and brats along with live entertainment from Munich’s Oktoberfest and dancers while the kids make crafts and play games. Presale adult tickets are $10; admission for children seven to 14 is $6 while children six and under are free.
While we don’t really see the leaves changing, we can still appreciate what makes Florida a year-round paradise (even in the fall) at LagoonFest on Saturday, November 3. Located along Flagler Drive in Downtown West Palm Beach, this fall festival of sorts features wildlife presentations, kayak clean-up tours, paddleboard yoga demonstrations, the Mural Painting wall, a Kid Zone, and more. The best part is that this festival is completely free! You can also stop by the West Palm Beach GreenMarket next door to find locally-grown seasonal fruits and vegetables and make your own fall-inspired dishes at home.
Fall may look different in Florida, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t get in the spirit of the season at these fall festivals in West Palm Beach.
