Fall Family Events in Baton Rouge

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!

The holiday season is fast approaching and we will all soon be preparing for Thanksgiving! Just like purchasing a new car, planning a Thanksgiving Day menu can be overwhelming and in both cases, All Star Ford in Denham Springs is here to help! Thanksgiving is about coming together with family and friends to give thanks for all of the things that make life great. We wanted to share one of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes with you to make planning your menu a little easier and help save you a little time that can be spent with your loved ones. And if you plan on being a guest for Thanksgiving dinner, bring along this dish and you won’t disappoint. This twist on an old classic holiday recipe will have your family and friends begging for more!

Bourbon Sweet Potato Casserole with Sweet ‘n’ Savory Bacon Pecans

– 4 medium sweet potatoes

– 3/4 cup brown sugar

– 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

– 1 teaspoon cinnamon

– 1/4 cup milk

– 1/4 cup butter, melted

– 2 eggs, lightly beaten

– 2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)

 

Sweet ‘n’ Savory Bacon Pecans

– 6 slices thick cut bacon, chopped

– 3/4 cup brown sugar

– 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

– 1 ½ cups raw pecans, roughly chopped

– 1/3 cup salted butter, melted

-1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

– 2 tablespoons fresh sage, chopped

– 1 to 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped (optional)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Poke a few holes in the sweet potatoes and bake for 1 hour or until soft and tender. When the sweet potatoes are cooked, slice them in half and allow to cool. Meanwhile, make the topping. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. Next, add the brown sugar, flour, pecans, butter, cayenne, sage and rosemary (if using) to a bowl and mix to combine. Stir in the fried bacon. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Peel the skins away from the flesh of the sweet potato and add the sweet potato to a mixing bowl. Mash well. Mix in the brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, milk, butter, eggs and bourbon until fully combined. Pour the sweet potatoes into a greased casserole dish (I used an oval). Spread the pecan topping over top of the sweet potatoes. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the pecans are golden. Remove from the oven and serve warm.

Thanksgiving Day Cooking Tip: Prepare the whole dish in advance and then just pop it in the oven to reheat.

Our entire team here at All Star Ford want to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
