With the leaves blowing about and changing color, the feeling of fall hovers in the air. Having some established traditions in the season, students and locals might find it difficult not to celebrate. After all, the season brings many celebrations such as Halloween, Elections Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and the beginning of Hanukkah.

“During the fall, you can go see the Headless Horseman at Conner Prairie,” senior Evan Buckler said. “It’s what my family has done every year.”

Students from FHS participate and celebrate the season in their own way. They can carve pumpkins and decorate houses, but they can also get involved with events that are held by the school and by the City, such as the 2018 Christmas in October Craft Fair taking place at FHS on Oct.13.

In this event, local vendors who create homemade crafts and products come to sell their goods to customers. Profits from the event will go towards the Riley Hospital for Children. Students, who participate in the Riley Dance Marathon committee help set up for the occasion.

Another activity that students have been able to participate in, is the Fishers Fall Farmer’s Market, which is held at Holland Park on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. during the fall and winter weekends. Fresh produce and homemade goods from local farms and homes make this event a Hoosier tradition.

“[The Fishers Fall Farmers Market] is a tradition that is local to the community,” senior Jacob Beaver said. “It’s a time where you can spend quality time with family during the fall.”
