We know what you are thinking. Why are we talking about fall when it’s still reaching over one-hundred degrees some days? Our excuse – time moves quickly, and cooler temperatures will be here sooner rather than later. Realistically, fall is our favorite season here at South Matrix and we can not help but talk about it! Living in Baton Rouge is a dream, and the way they celebrate these upcoming months are never anything short of amazing. Today, we are hoping to help you get into pumpkin spice season as much as us by sharing a few activities happening in the area that will be fun for you and your family!
Our first fall activity will make your enthusiasm go up, up, up! Who else is excited for the Louisiana Hot Air Balloon Championship Festival? This exciting event takes place between September 27th and the 29th. There will be hot air balloons, food, and music. Do we really need to say more? This is the perfect event to help you kick off the fall season. Where is it located? At the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center. There will be plenty to do, so be sure to bring out your family and friends!
Are you ready for our next event? Great because we are heading to the fair! The 2019 Greater Baton Rouge State Fair will take place between October 24th and November 3rd. We can hardly wait to visit the petting zoo, participate in the lawn tractor pool, and ride all of the rides. Now, we cannot leave out our favorite part about the fair: THE FOOD! The fair started here in Baton Rouge in 1965 and the fried goodness has just gotten better and better each year. Will you be joining us for this event full of cute animals, fried food, and thrilling rides? We hope so!
The last event that we want to clue you in on is the Fifolet Festival. What is that you ask? It is a month-long Halloween celebration! There will be a ghostly gala, a zombie pub crawl, a pumpkin pie run, and the family-friendly Halloween Town on the Mississippi riverfront. We take the scariest month of the year very seriously here in Louisiana and it would be a shame for you to miss out. It will be 31 days of tricks, treats, and ghouls.
Are you as ready as we are for the temperatures to drop and for the pumpkins to start sprouting in their patches? The fall season this year is going to be full of fun, football, and frights, so don’t miss out! Our team here at South Matrix have our game faces on and are ready to attend every ghostly ball, pig race, and festival. Hopefully, you will be joining us. If you can’t, no worries. We are very active on Instagram and will be posting updates after each event. Follow us – @South_Matrix! Enjoy these last few days of summer because fall is just around the corner.
