More Ways to Celebrate Fall in Delray Beach

In addition to all of the official events hosted in downtown Delray Beach and around the community, there are plenty of other ways to celebrate fall in the area. Here are some of the highlights:

Pumpkin Patches

What would fall be without pumpkins? Fun for adults and grandkids alike, there are a couple different pumpkin patch options around Delray Beach.

The Cason United Methodist Church at 342 North Swinton Ave will open their patch on Friday, October 15th and it runs through the end of the month. They also have fun planned activities like hayrides, face painting and more.

A little further out of town is Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market. Located in Boynton Beach at 10066 Lee Road, you can find your perfect pumpkin while also enjoying fresh produce, food trucks and a petting zoo. All the fun begins at Bedner’s starting Saturday, September 25th.

Full Moon on the Beach

Enjoying the fall season doesn’t always have to involve candy and costumes. Sometimes just enjoying the beauty of the nature around you is enough. This year there will be a full moon on Wednesday, October 20th. It’s hard to beat watching the reflection shimmering on the Atlantic Ocean while lounging on a sandy beach.

The community at Abbey Delray is dedicated to enhancing the passions and ambitions of residents. In the fall and all year round our residents enjoy resort-style amenities, socializing and celebrating life together.
