Fall Festivities in The Palm Beaches

With the first days of Fall we welcome all things Autumn, from cooler weather and pumpkin lattes to Halloween and Thanksgiving. When visiting The Palm Beaches, there are plenty of activities and events to keep the family entertained. If you’re looking for a pumpkin, it won’t be hard to find one. Here are a few of the best pumpkin patches in the area:

  • Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market, Boynton Beach Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market opened its annual Pumpkin Patch over the weekend and it will remain open until the end of October. The local favorite features hayrides for the whole family on select days and times during the week and runs continuously on the weekends with photo opportunities and food trucks each weekend. The pumpkin patch also offers hay rides and fun, family activities daily.
  • LifeSong Community Church, Abacoa - In its 9th year, the Abacoa Pumpkin Patch brings in a whopping 40,000 pounds of pumpkins each year. Aside from perusing the patch, there will be an array of family-friendly activities, including face painting, pumpkin painting, a children’s pumpkin area, picture sites, a bounce house and snow cones.


  • Halloween Nights at The Museum, offer visitors Halloween-themed science demos, a Spooky Science trail, live DJ, candy, prizes and more.
  • Boo Bash on the Boulevard at Downtown at The Gardens offers trick-or-treating, live music, games, costume contest, and a haunted beer garden.
  • Get your costumes ready! You’re also invited for an early Halloween celebration in Delray Beach’s Trick-or-Treat Along the Avenue.
  • Boo at the Zoo returns to The Palm Beach Zoo for not-so-spooky nights filled with animals, costumes, and candy.
  •  Spookyville returns to the South Florida Fairgrounds for another year of not-so-spooky rides, games, activities, nightly trick-or-treating and more for the little ones to enjoy, giving them plenty of time to give that Halloween costume some use.
  •  If you’re in the mood for something a little more frightening or a bit more adult-friendly, check out Celebration Cruise Line’s Halloween Horror Cruises out of West Palm Beach. The two-night trip to the Bahamas starts at $116 and includes a walk through the Deck of Death at the bottom of the ship, where no passengers have ever gone before. Also, consider visiting Fright Nights at The South Florida Fairgrounds for haunted houses, carnival rides and definitely prepare yourself for some screaming.

If fright isn’t your thing, the Annual Atlantic Grille Halloween Celebration is much more of a treat. This year’s celebration marks the Seagate Hotel & Spa’s 5th anniversary and takes place on Friday, October 31. The evening includes live entertainment, festive decorations, and a costume contest featuring extravagant hotel, spa and dining prizes. For overnight guests rates start at just $166.60 per night from October 30 through November 2.


One thing you won’t want to miss if you’re visiting The Palm Beaches this fall is the impressive lineup of seasonal spa menus at nearly all of the destination’s resort spas. Pumpkin is a natural exfoliate and often incorporated in facials and body scrubs to increase turnover and healing. Check out Eau Spa for a full menu of fun and lavish treatments.

Throughout the destination, top restaurants are incorporating the season change into both drink and dinner menus alike. The transition from light, summer menus to flavorful, rich dishes brings more pumpkin and fall flavors to cocktails, soups, salads and entrees. A few places you’re sure to see influences of the season are buccan, Café Boulud and Jové Kitchen & Bar at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach.
