Addison’s Fall Bucket List

The leaves are changing colors and crisp air is in the making, which means the season of candy corn and pumpkin spice lattes is right around the corner. If fall was a feeling, it would be a football Sunday with the windows slightly cracked and a crockpot full of chili. It’s time to get in the cobweb and cranberry spirit! Autumn in Addison is extra lively this year with plenty of fall festivities.

Harvest Hayday

Get ready to dust off your favorite picnic blanket, you’ll be lounging at Addison Circle Park on October 21st! Addison After Dark is celebrating the fall season by throwing a Harvest Hayday. It will be a night full of food trucks, live music and cocktails.

American Petty will be performing at 6:00 p.m., followed by Little Lies at 8:00 p.m. Stroll around the park and check out the vendors for unique gifts and tasty treats. Don’t forget to snatch some free samples of adult beverages!
