"I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin, and crisp sunburnt leaves." - Ann Drake

It's Pohatcong's big weekend: The annual historic house tour is Saturday, so there's a party the night before, plus the Grape Gallop and the Food Truck & Wine Festival, centered in and around Alba Vineyard. Fall is in full swing - in addition to the many events you'll find below, remember to click over to our Fall Farm Fun guide to locate the corn mazes (you'll have to find your own way out, though!), apple orchards, pumpkin patches, hay rides and more at places like Country Fresh Farms, seen in this beautiful and spooky photo by Teresa Kaminski. Happy Wanderings!
