Signs That Fall is Officially Here – Our Top Five
Many long-time residents of the Magic Valley will tell you that if you don’t like the weather, you should “wait five minutes.” That’s true of the other three seasons in Twin Falls, but when Fall arrives–usually right around Halloween–there’s no mistaking it’s arrival. Here are our top five signs that Fall has arrived in Twin Falls.
Red and Gold Leaves
I love watching the leaves change color on the trees, but this year it was like the “color switch” was flipped right around Halloween. Now all of those leaves are laying in our yard waiting for us to rake them.
Pumpkin Flavored Everything
You’ve all seen the signs: Pumpkin Spice This, or Pumpkin Pie Shake That… Pumpkins and pumpkin flavoring—specifically cinnamon—are very popular through Thanksgiving. Enjoy the pumpkin while you can. Next up: peppermint everything.
Holiday Expos & Festivals
‘Tis the season to get into full swing for Christmas and the Magic Valley has quite a few Holiday Expos. This year you’re invited to the Magic Valley Holiday Food & Gift Festival November 26th and 27th which promises premiere Holiday Shopping from local and regional vendors, artisans and merchants.
Friday brings with it a 70% chance of snow in the Magic Valley. According to the National Weather Service, rain and snow will develop after midnight and continue through noon leaving little to no accumulation on the valley floors. There is a continued chance of snow late Friday night, but that storm will leave no appreciable snow accumulations either. Despite freak snow storms in September and October, everyone knows the big one always hits in January.
Christmas In The Nighttime Sky
If the previous four entries are signs that fall has officially arrived, then Christmas in the Nighttime Sky is the official end of fall. This annual event at Kimberly Nurseries is held the day after Thanksgiving and has become the kick-off to the holidays in the Magic Valley. Organizers ask that participants bring one new, unwrapped toy for a boy or a girl to be donated to those in need right here in the Magic Valley. In exchange, you get a chili and potato dinner, hot chocolate, and a spectacular fireworks show set to the music of the season! Christmas in the Nighttime Sky is November 25th.
