Falling into the Season: Autumn Brings Texas Fun

Fall brings colder weather and many seasonal events for people to enjoy. It brings everything from concerts, to the Texas State Fair, pumpkin patches and even haunted corn mazes.

This season, people are swarming to listen to their favorite artists all across Dallas. According to resale ticket vendor Vivid Seats, Dallas is the seventh best city in the U.S. to see a concert.

Senior Cydney Garrelts said concerts during the fall season are more enjoyable compared to those in other seasons.

“It is cooler outside and lights come on, because it’s darker,” Garrelts said. “I enjoy the atmosphere and how it isn’t so crowded at concert venues.”

Garrelts said even though she can’t attend any of the concerts she would like to see this year, such as the Arctic Monkeys or the Mayday Parade concert, she is happy to still watch the concerts online.

“I’ll just watch the live streams or videos of the concerts when they come out on YouTube,” Garrelts said. “That way I can still enjoy them even though I’ll be at home.”

Senior Miranda Gilliland said she has also been in a festive spirit.

“I’ve been to the State Fair of Texas a couple of times this year,” Gilliland said. “I had never been before, so it was fun to experience it for the first time.”

Gilliland said she still has a couple events she wants to visit before fall comes to an end.

“I want to go to Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Texas this year,” Gilliland said. “I’m all about haunted houses, like Screams in Waxahachie.”

According to Gilliland, fall is the season she enjoys the most.

“Fall is the best season because of Halloween and Thanksgiving,” Gilliland said. “They offer food, scares and time off of school, which who could ask for more?”
