Fall Activities in Kent County

It's Fall!

It’s the first day of Fall! Are you ready for fallen leaves, apple picking, hayrides, bonfires, pumpkin carving, and everything else Fall has to offer? I know I am! With coronavirus still impacting our communities, and events getting canceled, we thought it’d be a good idea to fill you in on some fun things still happening in Kent County!
