Fall is a wonderful time of year that has a lot to offer whether you’re a person who enjoys the indoors or you’d rather be outside taking in the crisp air and changing leaves. What’s better than fall and the activities? Fall in the capital district! There a lot of fun activities planned if you want to do more than the usual leaf peeping.


Outside Activities

Adirondack Balloon Festival: September 21st through September 24th is the 45th annual festival held in Glens Falls and Queensbury. There are balloons of every shape and size taking over the sky. You can watch from the ground as they launch or take a drive and see a sky full of hot air balloons. 

Goold Orchard Apple Festival and Craft Show: The 28th annual festival will be held October 8th and 9th from 9am to 5pm. The festival will happen rain or shine, check the weather before heading up and see if you should come prepared with a rain coat or if a light jacket will suffice. There will be live music including Hair of the Dog, tents with crafts, and a tent for wine tasting! 

Turkey Trot: The Troy Turkey Trot began in 1916 and has been growing in popularity ever since!  Wake up early Thanksgiving morning and participate or cheer from the sidelines. When the race concludes, you’ll be ready for your Thanksgiving meal!


Indoor Activities 

Apple and Wine Festival: This festival is happening  September 16th and 17th at the Altamont Fair Grounds! Since it’s at the Altamont Fair Grounds, some events may occur outdoors. But there’s much to do inside as well! A haunted house for the kids, wine tasting, crafts, Pampered Chef cooking demonstrations and much more!


New York State Museum: There are many exhibitions coming up for the NYS museum including Enterprising Waters: New York’s Erie Canal and Votes for Women: Celebrating New York’s Suffrage Centennial. These are in addition to their ongoing exhibitions such as Minerals of New York and Fire Engine Hall. Make learning fun! 


So get out there this fall with friends and family and enjoy some fun activities! If you’re searching for more activities, or if you’d like to schedule a tour of our apartments, contact Stonegate Apartments today!
