Fall is the time of year when corn mazes appear, jack-o-lantern carving occurs, and pumpkin spice abounds. Fill Your Plate has got you covered when it comes to fall activities you can do with your friends and family. See below for activities, decoration ideas, recipes, and more to spice up your holiday season.



See AZFB Fall 2020 CHOICES for a list of activities at farms around the state you can participate in.

Make sure to visit Arizona farmer markets as well as local farm stores and bakeries to stock up on those fall goodies.

My family loved surprising our neighbors with goodies when we were younger. We called it “boo-ing our neighbors”. Our neighborhood stopped doing it a while ago but I’m thinking we can revive it this year! Here’s the instructions. You can fill your bucket with Halloween movies, candy, cookies, Halloween decorations, etc. Your only limit is your imagination!
