Fall Festival 2014

img-4259.jpgOur annual Fall Festival is one of my favorite events of the year.

I don’t know if it’s the beautiful weather, the amazing food or the darling decorations, but it is just a happy time.

One of the most popular features of the Fall Festival was the pumpkin patch!

These were a few of my favorites:

Of course, it wouldn’t be a fall festival without delicious food!

After sampling the Three Sister’s Stew, I took a stroll through the Spiral Garden and snapped a few pictures of the giant gourds.

If you are planning a visit to the Cultural Center, be sure to check out the Spiral Garden. Located behind the Traditional Village, the garden produces a lot of food used in the Aaimpa' Café.

Guests that attended the Fall Festival were able to help us cultivate our winter plants and take home a few for their own garden.

If you missed out, don’t worry! We have a lot of fun things planned in the next few months. Check out our events page for a list of upcoming celebrations.

I hope to see you soon!
