Fall is in full swing and that means cooler weather and more time outside! We know how stir crazy the kiddos can get after being at school all day! They just want to go ride their bikes and play basketball outside, but then they get tired of doing the same old thing. That’s when it’s time to load up the family and go do some fun activities and festivals! We have complied a list of some of our favorite Fall Family Events to do in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas! These activities are all kid friendly, inexpensive (some even being free!), and fun activities that are sure to bring the family together this fall season!
Corn Maze Saturdays at Burden
The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens puts on its annual Corn Maze festivities! The whole family is sure to enjoy this event during Louisiana’s most beautiful months! Enjoy tons of activities such as the petting zoo, enjoy a hayride, try the giant sling shots, climb the straw mountain and more!
The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens also has an event called Night Maze and Bonfire on Saturday, October 29 starting at 10 AM and ending at 9 PM. Enjoy bonfires, s’mores, music and more! Dress the kiddos up in their costumes and have a night to remember!
Fall Art Crawl
Businesses along Main Street in Zachary and surrounding areas downtown invite artists to display their fine art to sell and open their doors to the public for approximately 3 hours on the Friday night of the event. There will be live music at various locations throughout the route as well! The purpose of Fall Art Crawl is to stimulate economic growth in our local businesses, promote the sales of local artists, and raise funds for year-round arts programming. Although this event is in Zachary, we wanted to include it because it supports locals throughout the area!
Washington Parish Free Fair
Although this event is in Franklinton, we had to add it to our list mainly because it is such a fun event and it’s free! Load the kiddos up for a day trip to Franklinton for the largest parish/count free fair in the country and the second oldest fair in Louisiana! There are tons of activities for all kid ages such as McDonald’s Farm, stage shoes and a variety of agricultural and livestock exhibits!
As you can tell, we love fall! There are tons of fun, inexpensive and engaging activities to do in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas! So get out there, enjoy the beautiful fall weather and make some memories that will last a lifetime! If you and your family go to any of these events, make sure to take pictures!
