Don’t Miss These 9 Great Pumpkin Patches In Mississippi This Fall

Of course, pumpkin patches are also a welcome sign of fall, and finding the perfect one is a special task every year. Not sure which patch is perfect for picking?

When can I see peak fall foliage in Mississippi?
It’s always hard to make Mother Nature stick to a precise schedule, but generally speaking, peak fall foliage in Mississippi occurs from mid-October until the first week of November. If we get an early frost, then that’ll change things and the window will be much more narrow. Northern Mississippi will see the colors begin to change first, and then it’ll trickle down to the southern part of the state, including the Gulf Coast. The Farmers’ Almanac is a great resource to predict when the colors will change, and a great tip would be to follow one of the many Mississippi State Parks which will usually alert their followers to any colorful changes happening in the parks.
