WASHINGTON — Cooler temperatures and changing leaves are just a few signs that fall is here. Festivals celebrating apples and pumpkins are another.
If you’re looking to get in the sweater-weather spirit this season, look no further. Here are 18 of the area’s best fall festivals.
H Street Festival
Saturday, Sept. 16
H Street is one of the city’s most thriving neighborhoods, and so is its annual festival. The free event includes food, face painting, live performances and more.
“It’s such a hip neighborhood now, and the festival has just exploded. Every year it gets more and more popular,” says D.C.-area travel and parenting writer Guiomar Ochoa.
But be forewarned: “Don’t take your car, take Metro. It’s impossible to find parking,” Ochoa adds. (WTOP/Dana Gooley)
