Fall in Fairhope

There are certain times of year that Fairhope really shines. Fall is an exciting time in our town. For one, the weather changes so quickly.  All of a sudden the air is cool and crisp.  It is invigorating. The sunsets come earlier and this time of year are amazing.  Every sunset in Fairhope is beautiful, but the October sunsets take the cake.  Take a stroll on the Municipal Pier at around sunset and you will be amazed.

I believe the best part of this season in our town is the comfort of routine.  After a long hot summer of the kids being home from school, beach trips, out of town guests & family vacations, it is nice to have a few months of routine.  It's almost as if you can put your everyday life on auto-pilot for a short while and allow your spirit to be renewed with the hope and promise of the upcoming holiday season and new year.  

School spirit is abound in the Fall.  Many Fairhopians make their way to Volanta Park on Friday nights to cheer our Fairhope Pirates.  When a town has one public high school, there is no divide.  Blue and yellow are the colors for Fridays in Fall in Fairhope (say that three times fast).  Then, the next morning, we sport the attire of our favorite college teams. 

Fairhope knows how to celebrate a season.  From hay rides to downtown trick-or-treating to costume parties, there is no shortage of activities for children and adults to take part.  Our friends at Eastern Shore Parents have compiled a great list of Fall Activities in Fairhope for Family

Although Fairhope is an awesome place to call home any time of year, the Fall Season is truly a time Fairhopians cherish as we get settled and ready for the holidays and enjoy being a part of this wonderful community.
