Sweater, scarf, and pumpkin spice latte season has arrived in the Twin Cities! Once the leaves begin changing and crisp temps follow, many of us start itching to get outside and enjoy some festive fall fun. If you’re looking to sip hot cider, visit a pumpkin patch, or just enjoy fall family time in the neighborhood, we’ve compiled a list of activities and events below!
