Are you looking for something fun to do with your kids this fall? Macomb County may be the perfect place for you to get outside and enjoy everything that this season has to offer.
You can start your family’s fun at one of the community farmers markets, which offer all kinds of festive fall foods, like pumpkins and gourds, and handmade wares from local creatives.
Some of these markets may even have fun activities for kids. Check out the list of Macomb County farmers markets here for details.
After the farmers market, you can hit up a local apple orchard to score some delicious cider and doughnuts — or if you’re feeling spooky, one of the many Halloween-themed shows and festivals.
Take a look below for information on the family fall fun coming up in Macomb County this year and start planning your family’s next outing today!
