Fall Harvest Festival 

Runs through Sunday, Oct. 6

Idaho Botanical Garden celebrates the season with its annual Fall Harvest Festival Saturday, Oct. 5, and Sunday, Oct. 6, with a farmers market, live music, food, hayrides and more autumnally appropriate activities for the whole family.

Take a wagon ride around the garden grounds and stop by a house made entirely of pumpkins (Hansel and Gretel eat your heart out). Purchase fresh produce, locally made art pieces and other homemade treats throughout both days.

While the kids suck down cider and give new meaning to smashing pumpkins with Discovery Center of Idaho's Pumpkin Trebuchet, you can enjoy locally made beer and wine from Indian Creek Winery, Fraser Winery, Cellar 616, Payette Brewing, Crooked Fence Brewing and Highland Hollow Brewhouse--not to say adults won't dig the pumpkin chucking, especially after a beer or two.

Grab a bite from Willow Creek Grill, Bel Cibo Food Truck and Panzano Pizza while you explore the pumpkin patch and meet local author and blogger Gretchen Anderson while she explains the exciting world of backyard chickens, because nothing says fall like rooster rearing. There's also face painting, fall-themed temporary tattoos and a straw maze to keep the kiddos busy while you browse the fall bulb catalog and garden store.

The weekend celebration will be dotted with live music from local bands, including High Desert Band and Hillfolk Noir on Saturday and Possum Livin and Blaze and Kelly on Sunday.
