What are some of your favorite fall traditions? Apple picking, hayrides, Oktoberfest, pumpkin festivals, you name it. There are tons of ways to celebrate the season, with the help of natural gas and oil. Here are a few of our favorite fall harvest festivals from across the country:
For over 50 years, the National Apple Harvest Festival has been a popular fall destination. Held in Pennsylvania apple country near historic Gettysburg, the festival has craft vendors, live entertainment, orchard tours and of course, food and fun. Two special highlights of the event that cannot be missed are the antique cars on display, which run on natural gas and oil, and the famous, hand-crafted candied apples, which you can take home with you in plastic bags or containers.
This unique festival highlights Portland, Maine’s diverse food and spirits. The celebration of fall and the area’s local food scene brings out Maine’s top chefs, who prepare delicious dishes in kitchens fueled by natural gas and oil, for hungry foodies from around the world.
What is fall without a little Oktoberfest revelry? This Bavarian-themed event in Leavenworth, Washington features live music, entertainment, traditional Bavarian food, and of course, beer. The events are housed in several tents, including the Festhalle, Tanz Halle, Bier Suite and Spass Platz, all made of waterproof, flame-retardant PVC.
This festival has it all—food, entertainment, a car show, souvenirs, a 10k/5k race and a 34-foot pumpkin tower. The festival is family friendly, and you can even bring your dog, so long as the pup is on a leash, often made of nylon. This year, local food trucks, whose motors and cooking equipment run on natural gas and oil, will also participate in the festival.
Every October, Albuquerque hosts the biggest hot air ballooning event in the world. Thousands of spectators and photographers travel to New Mexico to witness hundreds of colorful hot air balloons, usually made of nylon or polyester, take to the skies. This cherished tradition is a beautiful and exciting way for tourists and residents to welcome fall.
