Fall festivities begin across the Valley
It's Labor Day weekend, which means the calendar unofficially changes from summer to fall.
At Parks Garden Center in Canfield this weekend kicks off the opening of their Pumpkin Express.
Owner Tim Parks says although they won't have pumpkins and gourds until mid-next week, right now he says it's all about the mums.
"We have tens of thousand of mums," said Parks.
Parks said this is the start to their fall season and "it just ramps up from here."
Some very large pumpkins are already on display outside the garden center. Parks estimates that they weigh between 1,000 and 1,100 pounds. After the Canfield Fair, they will also receive several other pumpkins to place on display.
White House Fruit Farm is also gearing up for their fall season.
They shared on Facebook that they are currently hiring to help with their kids area during fall weekends.
Fall weekends begin at White House Fruit Farm on September 11th and run through October 24th.
They offer Horse Drawn Wagon Rides, a petting zoo, and the "Budgie" Bird Feeding Experience.
But, White House encourages people to visit throughout the week - not just weekends.
Their Pumpkin Pavilion and Fall Gift Barn feature pumpkins and fall decorations, gifts, apparel, and family games.
At Molnar Farms in Poland, they won't officially get into the spirit of fall until October.
Each weekend in October Molnar farms will feature their corn maze, straw maze, hayrides and kids play area. They will also have on display their large straw barrel creations like they do each and every year.
