17,000 Beautiful Flowers In Bloom At The Barberton Mum Festival Near Cleveland

Autumn is a season of splendid color. Northeast Ohioans enjoy indulging in seasonal fun by going to pumpkin patches and apple orchards, and corn mazes and hayrides are also at the top of the mind as soon as the season rolls around. The unsung hero of the fall is the chrysanthemum, however, as it decorates the entryways of homes but is often forgotten when it comes to the seasonal festivity. That is unless you visit Barberton, Ohio. This quaint community is less than an hour away from Cleveland, and it throws the very finest mum festival in Northeast Ohio each fall. Pack some candy corn and caramel apples for a road trip snack, because the trip to this mum festival is sure to get you in the fall spirit.
