Fall is the traditional harvest, when a field's bounty is brought in, and steins of beer lifted to toast a secure, well-fed winter ahead. The Adirondacks honor the harvest at Oktoberfest celebrations across the region, from the air during the annual Lake George hot air balloon festival, from the vine-covered paths of pumpkin patches, and the richly-scented air of apple orchards. This fall, discover the Adirondacks' take on the harvest and experience the best fall foliage in NY.
