Fall for the Garden

Fall starts with a bang on September 21 at Cleveland's RIPE! Fest No. 4, the fourth annual celebration of Cleveland's best bites, brews and tunes. The season ends with a "boo" - the ever-popular BOO-tanical Bash, when gentle ghosts greet kids for games and trick-or-treating in Hershey Children's Garden.

In between are colorful, crisp days when the Garden is painted in brilliant hues of yellow, orange and red. So put on a sweater, sip some hot cider and fall for all the Garden has to offer this autumn.
