Fall in Michigan brings the promise of so much more than just the changing colors of the trees. It also means fall festivals and everything pumpkin-spiced and colorful. It’s a season that offers a unique set of sensory treats, from a color palette brimmed with scorching reds, golds, and oranges to the olfactory delight of drying leaves.
