November fall festivities

Fall celebrations don’t end with Halloween. Check out these activities that will get you in the autumnal spirit.

Corn maze

Get lost at Clinton Sease Farm’s annual corn maze. This year’s “Amazed by the Weather” themed corn maze is open Friday-Sunday until Nov. 19. Admission is $14 and gives you access to all of the farm’s fall festivities. If you’re bravely planning on navigating the maze after dark, you are required to bring your own non-cellphone flashlight or plan to purchase one for $5. For hours and ticket information visit Clinton Sease Farm’s website.

Cozy campfire

It doesn’t get much better than sitting around a campfire, staring at its firey glow and watching sparks fly into the night sky. At Clinton Sease Farm you can reserve your own campfire. Packages include a hayride to the campfire, a s’mores kit, hot dog materials, chips and drinks. The farm will take care of everything, so you can sit back, relax and let the stories begin. Visit Clinton Sease Farm’s website for pricing and call 803-730-2863 to make your campfire reservation.

Drive-thru fall festival

Join Omega Phi Alpha 2-5 p.m. Nov. 14 for a drive-thru fall festival that will benefit the Alala Cancer Society. Tickets will be $5 per person in each vehicle. Pick a time slot on Eventbrite to reserve a chance to safely stay in your car while playing games, winning prizes and enjoying food. Questions should go to Tianna at 803-569-4373 Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Apple orchard hayride

Take a day trip to York, S.C., for a hayride around Windy Hill Orchard and Cider Mill. Hayrides are continuing throughout November along with several other activities at the orchard. Post-hayride, enjoy live music, cider and shopping. For the full calendar of events, visit the Windy Hill Orchard and Cider Mill website.

Autumnal picnic

Enjoy the autumn weather underneath some of the most beautiful fall foliage Columbia has to offer. Pack a picnic and head over to the Horseshoe or Riverfront Park for a nice outdoor meal. We recommend crafting an elaborate charcuterie board and bringing a pumpkin spiced latte from one of Columbia’s local coffee shops.
