It’s finally here! The true autumn season is upon us and we are ready to enjoy Sweater Weather! We’re thinking of bonfires, orchard visits, pumpkin patches and craft fairs – doesn’t it sound divine? Here is a list of fun things to do near Milan in Fall 2019!
The first thing to do is happening now – The Naturally Country Fall Fest is running today through Monday, 09-16-2019. Naturally Country is a wonderful store (but really so much more) in Norwalk, Ohio, which carries beautifully designed home decor. All new colors and textured for Autumn and going into Winter will be featured during the Fall Fest, as well as drawings and refreshments.
