Unpack the fall wreath and order a Pumpkin Spice Latte, because it’s time for fall!
I am a proud Texan, born and bred, but I must confess I envy those who are enjoying cool, crisp air and orange leaves in September. Nevertheless, the fall season begins on September 23rd, and sweaters or not, Frisco residents are ready for it! The kids are choosing Halloween costumes, parents are planning a visit to the pumpkin patch, and we’re all marking our calendars for fall events. Before you know it, we will trade flip-flops for boots, and see It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown scheduled on TV.
So what to do this fall in Frisco? Lifestyle Frisco has done the homework for you. Go ahead and plan your fall fun!
Frisco Humane Society’s 9th Annual Barktoberfest is October 11th at Frisco Commons Park. Pet-lovers unite for a dog costume contest, a dog walk around the lake, a kissing booth, face painting and more. The dog walk is free, but there are many opportunities at the event to help raise money for the Frisco Humane Society. Bring your pets, your kids and your friends!

Many Frisco families make it an annual tradition to visit Pumpkins on the Prairie. Take pictures in the pumpkin patch, enjoy a hay ride, and let the little ones navigate the hay maze! With wagons available for hauling pumpkins, you’ll want to stock up for your front porch this season. The pumpkin patch opens on September 27th, with daily hours through October 31st.
In addition to their annual Fall Festival, First United Methodist Church Frisco hosts a large pumpkin patch every year throughout October. Pumpkins will arrive at the end of September.
Trick or Treat Events
Frisco Square is will host the 4th Annual ‘Trick or Treat the Square’ on October 26th. Come dressed in costume and trick or treat at many of your favorite restaurants, shops and businesses in Frisco Square. There will be wagon rides around the square and a ‘spook house’ (not too spooky, they tell us!).
Frisco Fire Department Safety Town will once again open their doors for Trick-or-Treating. Kids up to 5th grade can visit the village shops in Safety Town, where volunteers will pass out candy. This free event is popular, so come early, prepare to wait in line, and consider parking off-site. Shuttles are available from the Frisco Athletic Center, or you can park at the adjacent Wal-Mart. It’s worth the wait, and the kids have fun checking out each other’s costumes while waiting their turn.
