What are some fall festivals in Texas?

- P-6 Farms, Montgomery, TX: One of the largest fall festivals in Texas can be found at P-6 Farms. With more than 20 attractions to keep your family entertained, it is an event you'll want to return to year after year with sunflower fields and corn mazes to pig races and kid-friendly rollercoasters. Of course, no fall festival worth its salt would dare to miss out on plenty of pumpkins and apple cider donuts.
- Beachtoberfest, Port Aransas, TX: This fall festival is like none other - only Texas could pull off Beachtoberfest. For eight whole weeks, you'll enjoy sand pumpkin "carving" haunted hayrides, shopping deals, and the Beach Pumpkin Hustle 5K. Oh, and the most amazing Texas BBQ around!
- San Antonio’s Pizza Festival, San Antonio, TX: We bet you've gone to a BBQ festival or even a crawfish festival, but pizza? San Antonio pulls out all of the stops with this unique foodie festival in October.
