Fall in Southwest Florida

Fall in Southwest Florida

            The best season in SW Florida has finally approached us! Fall is the time of the year where pumpkins grow, temperatures drop, and celebrations last all day. Everything in sight is beautiful as the temperature drops to the low to mid 70’s and humidity slowly disappears. A slight breeze blows that keeps you refreshed while the sun warms you when you feel a slight chill. Fall is the perfect season in SW Florida and is great when planning outdoor events; such as, camping, canoeing, and festivals!


Every year hundreds of people come down to Punta Gorda to  attend the “Dragon Boat Festival” at Laishley Park, on October 29. As adults watch manually boats racing, kids play on bouncy houses while taking a big bite into a snow cone. A variety of booths are set up during these festivals to entertain you with games, face paint, and inform you about  more upcoming events in SW Florida.  For instance, the International Airshow and Haunting on the Harbor in Punta Gorda. The International Airshow fly’s jets in a sequence giving a spectacular show on October 21-23. Haunting on the Harbor is a spooky way to get everyone in the spirit for Halloween. It includes a haunted house, costume contest, and live music/entertainment held on October 28-31 in downtown Punta Gorda.

At the end of the day people listen to music and hang out at many of the beautiful parks or Harbor front restaurants  to watch Fall’s most colorful sunsets in Punta Gorda. Many have stated that the sun looks exactly like a pumpkin during Fall at sundown.
