Top 5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Fall in Oakville, Burlington, Milton, and Halton Hills


October is here and fall is in full swing … in celebration of autumn’s best month, from the crisp amber leaves in Burlington to preparing for some serious Halloween fun in Oakville to enjoying Milton’s epic scenery, there’s so much to look forward to! We’ve put together a list of unique activities sure to please both family and friends alike. Here we go!

5) Throw A Grown-Up Halloween Party

Halloween is everyone’s favourite holiday no matter how old you may be. Channel your inner child and throw a very elaborate (or simple) grown-up Halloween party! Serve your friends fun treats such as these Rice Krispie shaped pumpkins, and an assortment of these fun Halloween cupcakes. Spice the party up ‘grown up style’ with some spooky cocktails!

4) Fondue Night

Because what’s better than warm chocolate or cheese drizzled over anything in the colder months? Fondue night is an eclectic alternative to wine night with your besties. Slice up an assortment of delicious fruit and an array of cookies perfect for dipping into the chocolate. For the cheese, experiment with different types of bread, crackers, cherry tomatoes and apples!

3) Scavenger Hunt

All the fallen leaves make a perfect setting for a fun scavenger hunt! Create teams of four to follow a list of interesting and familiar items around your neighbourhood and get creative and playfully competitive! Try to get members of all ages on this—from kids to parents and friendly faces in the area! The more participants the better!

If you want to host your event in one of Burlington’s many gorgeous parks, here's a list of great locations to get you started. And here’s our favourite park in Milton. 

2) DIY Pumpkin Spice Lattes

What screams October more than a perfectly crafted PSL (besides Halloween, of course?!). Get your friends together and create your own delicious fall indulgences with do it yourself recipes such as this one. Insta-ready indeed! If you don't want to make your own, go on a PSL cafe crawl by visting every place on our Top 5 PSL list.
