Fall Festivities Near Campus

Posted on 10/23/2017 10:38:22 PM by Julia Cattani

Fall is one of the most exciting times of the year, and there are many places to celebrate the impending colder weather right around Cabrini’s campus. So grab your friends and a cozy sweater and get ready to indulge in the pumpkin spirit.

1. Linvilla Orchards

Looking for somewhere to get a pumpkin? Want to go on a hayride? How about getting lost in a corn maze? Linvilla Orchards satisfies these needs and so many more. Not only will you have a fun afternoon, but you can get a cute picture at the same time. It’s definitely time to pumpkin spice up that Instagram feed!

2. Pennhurst Asylum

Are you the kind of person who loves the thrill of Halloween? Are you not afraid to be scared out of your mind? Then the Pennhurst Asylum may be a great place for you to spend a spooky night! Located just a half hour away in Spring City, this attraction may be the place for you and your friends to take a break from homework and get spooked!

3. Sugartown Strawberries

Fall is a great time to buy fresh produce, gourds, and flowers.  Stopping by Sugartown Strawberries in Malvern will fill your heart with joy and your room with goodies! Grab a handful of sunflowers, find a pumpkin in the pumpkin patch, or hop on the back of the tractor for a ride, but be warned, they only accept cash or check, no cards here!

4. Renaissance Faire

There is nothing like experiencing the Renaissance Faire in the height of the fall weather. The aroma of turkey legs, soup, and candy entices you as you walk around the Faire, taking in the costumed entertainers, handmade arts and crafts, and fun exhibits. While you’re there, don’t forget to get a pickle on a stick! What a whacky, but delicious, treat while you explore.

5. Rice’s Market

Another staple in the Philadelphia area is Rice’s Farmer’s Market. While this location is about an hour off campus, it can really be a great way to take a break from studying and get some holiday shopping out of the way. You can pick up anything and everything from Rice’s: antiques, technology, jewelry, clothing, and so much more.  While it is a lot of fun, be forewarned that it is always busy. Always.
