Fall is known for flashing by in the blink of an eye, so you better make sure to take advantage of all there is to do. Here are a few suggestions on how to make this Autumn memorable.

Lakeview Farms, located in North Plains, has an abundance of fall activities for all ages to take part in. Only a 15 minute drive away from campus, it is sure to be worth the time. Whatever fall activity you’re looking to participate in, you will find it there.

Lakeview farms has an incredibly diverse pumpkin patch ranging from white pumpkins to bright orange pumpkins and small pumpkins to big groovy pumpkins; you can spend your time trying to find the perfect pumpkin. The farm also has farm animals that people are allowed to interact with as well as pony rides offered during the weekends. The farm has a giant corn maze decorated with Halloween decorations as well.

If none of the mentioned activities fit your forte, the farm is known for selling amazing caramel apples, pumpkin spice lattes and kettle corn- who could turn that down? The farm runs until Oct. 31, so make sure to make your way down there soon.

If you’re more into getting scared during the fall season, look no further than Theatre in The Grove.

The theater puts on a haunted house during the weekends in the evenings. The haunted house’s theme this year is based upon the story of the mysterious noise that was heard multiple times in Forest Grove last year.

According to this year’s story, an investigative reporter went missing trying to figure out the meaning behind the mysterious noise, and the Theatre in The Grove was apparently destroyed. The haunted theater has two options on Halloween day itself: a family friendly adventure offered during the early afternoon, and then a more mature and scary show time later on in the evening.

If you’re feeling more adventurous during the fall season, Outdoor Pursuits will be hosting a costume climbing trip on Oct. 28th. The trip will consist of indoor rock climbing at Planet Granite in Portland. Climbers are encouraged to wear costumes. Planet Granite will turn off their lights at 8:00 p.m. and then brings out headlamps to produce a spooky feeling. OP’s trip is $10 which will include gear rental, the van ride and admission to Planet Granite.

If all else fails, there’s nothing wrong with just taking a stroll through Forest Grove when the sun’s out and shining.

There’s all the small things as well, like jumping in leaves, drinking hot cider, and carving pumpkins that students should definitely participate in as well. There’s an abundance of fall activities for Pacific students to do.
