Riverwalk Fall Festival

South Florida doesn’t have the fall colors or fall temperatures that most other regions in the nation have, but that doesn’t mean South Floridians don’t love to celebrate autumn. This is only the second annual event and it is completely free. The event includes fall-themed games and live music by the School of Rock of Coral Springs and the School of Rock of West Broward. Pets on a leash are welcome and guests can bring lawn chairs to enjoy the day at Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale.

Held on American Indian Day and hosted by the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida, the annual American Indian Day Festival is hosted at the Miccosukee Resort and Gaming. For those of you who haven’t gone, it is a great way to celebrate and learn about the American Indian culture. Attendees can enjoy festive and cultural activities such as dancing, food, music, tribal arts and crafts and a Miccosukee fashion show. Also, guests can watch exciting alligator wrestling and go on a free airboat ride into the Everglades.

Reef Fest  

Sept. 29 – Oct. 2, various locations in Key Largo

Even at the end of September, the water is still warm enough for people to celebrate the beautiful and world-renowned coral reefs located off the coast of the Florida Keys. This event will have a lot for divers to do including exploring local coral reefs that are named some of the best in the country. Don’t worry, this event is still for you even if you don’t dive.
