Though Sarasota may not have much of the chilly breezes and falling leaves that other regions associate with fall, this beautiful, sunny city still has all the fun Halloween and fall activities to get you and your family “in the spirit” of fall. From pumpkin festivals and carnival rides to corn mazes and “haunted” storytelling, there’s something perfect for every member of the family. Here, the friendly Sarasota movers of First Class Moving have prepared a list of some fun and exciting events coming up in and around Sarasota this season.
