Football, sweaters, bonfires and beautiful foliage – what is not to love about the autumn season? If you are excited about fall, but are living on a budget, there are a variety of fun activities that you can do at little or no cost to help you get out and enjoy the season.
Having a tight budget shouldn’t keep you from enjoying football season. Season tickets to professional or college football games can be very expensive, but the Cedar Valley is home to many successful high school football teams that offer affordable admittance. If you really enjoy football, organize a game with friends and family at a local park to have some fun and get some exercise!

One favorable aspect of autumn is that the temperatures drop, but still remain comfortable. This provides a great opportunity to get out and enjoy the cooler weather by taking a stroll or ride on the local recreational trails. Not only does this help get you outside to enjoy the weather, but this is a great time to appreciate the beautiful foliage as the leaves begin to change.
Harvest season is a time for celebrating our local farmers and their success out in the fields this year. This season brings a variety of festivals and fun activities throughout harvesting communities, like the Cedar Valley! In fact, the Cedar Valley Arboretum holds a harvest festival each year that you can attend for very little cost.
Autumn is famous for apple picking, which is a great way to get fresh produce at more affordable prices and to have some fun with your family. However, be wary of pumpkin prices as pumpkins are often more expensive before Halloween. The closer you get to Halloween, the more likely pumpkins are to go on sale.
