Fall Activities To Do On A Budget

With the leaves changing colors and that nice cool crisp feeling back in the air, the autumn season has finally arrived! Are you looking for ways to enjoy the fall without falling into debt? Well, get your pumpkin spice, grab a football, and pick up that rake in the garage, because we’re about to explore some great ways to enjoy fall traditions on a budget!

1. Enjoy An Outdoor Concert

Now that the weather is cooler, spending time outside doesn’t feel like such a chore. In fact, you can have some outdoor fun. Enjoying some live music while you do it? That’s an added bonus! Luckily, in our neck of the woods, you have options. You can get your live music fix at Downtown Alive, The Mercredi Show in Pelican Park, and The Sugar Jam.

2. Have A Bonfire Night

Bonfires are the perfect way to warm up on a cool autumn evening, and the perfect occasion to invite your friends over to roast marshmallows and hotdogs on an open flame. You can save by having everyone bring a s’mores ingredient, and you can even go hunting for sticks in the woods to fuel the fire!

3. Tailgate From Home

You don’t have to buy those pricey tickets to the big game to enjoy a tailgate with your friends and family! Watch the game from home and grill burgers from your own backyard. Plus, if your party is potluck style, you can split food costs by having everyone bring a tailgate treat.

4. Carve Pumpkins

Fall means it’s time to find the perfect pumpkins for carving! Whether you create a more traditional Jack-O-Lantern, or try a new artistic direction on your pumpkin, the whole family will have fun carving their own creation. It can be tempting to go to a pumpkin patch to pick out your pumpkin, but you can actually save some money if you purchase from a grocery store where pumpkins are less expensive.

5. Spooky Movie Night

Fall is spooky season after all, so why not plan a movie night where you watch a few of your favorite Halloween movies! Most low-cost streaming services have Halloween film collections. You can also use the seeds from pumpkin carving to make tasty toasted pumpkin seeds as a film fest snack!

6. Play In The Park

Who doesn’t love a good outing to a local park? Perfect for family fun, a picnic, or even just a leisurely stroll, Moncus Park can’t be beaten. The park has multiple playgrounds and hiking trails and it hosts a ton of fun events.
