Last chance for fall fun in Minnesota

After this weekend, the holiday events will get underway so this may be your last chance to embrace the fall season by wandering through a pumpkin patch, jumping in a corn pit and getting lost in a corn maze. Sever’s Fall Festival in Shakopee is open Oct. 28-29 and then they will begin switching over to their Holiday Lights event. This will also be the last weekend for Twin Cities Harvest Festival in Brooklyn Park. Ferguson’s Minnesota Harvest in Jordan will remain open through Nov. 5 and Aamodt’s Apple Farm is open through December, but many of their fall offerings will wrap up this weekend as well.
