With the first day of autumn set to kick off this weekend, it’s time to start planning for fall festivities, foliage adventures, and harvest inspired tastes! Fittingly, we want to help make your fall activity planning as simple as possible.
So, this fall, we’ve introduced our “Fall Foliage Fun Planner,” an interactive means to create your own fall adventure with a little help from our furry fall friend, Mott the Squirrel!
Here’s how it works: you start by selecting a week, and from there, Mott shares the current foliage conditions, as well as a set of fun fall events.

For this weekend, here’s a quick roundup of a few events that you can venture out to for some fun:
12th Annual Festival of Ale, where you can roam the magnificent Great Hall of the Higgins Armory Museum while sampling some of the finest brews from the area’s craft brewers. 9/22/12
Revels RiverSing, where you can join thousands of voices in song as the Revels celebrate the approaching equinox with music, poetry, and communal singing along the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge. 9/23/12
King Richard’s Faire, a New England renaissance festival that features a variety of entertainment, exciting rides, games, and much, much more. Open through October 21.
The Big E: Eastern States Exposition, the largest fair in the Northeast, and famously home to The Big E Cream Puff, and Craz-E Burger, as well as an array of top name entertainment. Open through September 30.
The planning doesn’t stop there! Mott also suggests a set of fall driving routes based on your location of interest.

For example, click to the Mohawk Trail, and you will receive a quick description of the areas best driving routes, as well as directions, and fun stops along the way.
And for avid foliage enthusiasts, we’ve even made sure that you can receive foliage alerts on the go. Text MAFALL to 74642, and you’ll receive up-to-date foliage alerts on your mobile phone! *Standard message rates apply.
So, check back each week this season, and you’ll be a fall expert in no time!
