17 September Events: Rodeo, N.H. Marathon, Flower Workshop & More [2018]

Aug 30, 2018 04:21PM ● By Erin Frisch
Fall is what people come to New England for— with fantastic foliage and crisp fall air there are always things to do both inside and out. Traditionally, people love to go apple picking, saunter through a corn maze, pick out pumpkins but most of all stop to take pictures of New England's grand landscapes.

Whether you're looking to have an adults' night out or even looking for family activities we've got you covered with a wide array of things to do this fall in Hanover and beyond.

Fun For the Whole Family

Sometimes all we want to do is get out of the house with the whole family and spend some time together. Let your kids enjoy Harvest Festival at Billings Farm, or take them to the Vermont Mac & Cheese challenge where they can try as much mac & cheese as they like while you sip on a Beer from Harpoon Brewery. Here are a group of options to enjoy with your significant other, the kids, and anyone else for that matter.
