weekend getaways in texas

Fall is a great time for weekend getaways in Texas. The air is beginning to cool (during the evenings, at least), the stores are filling up with pumpkins and spices, and the festivities are about to begin.

That’s right, it’s time again for the Canton Main Street Autumn Festival. This will be the sixteenth annual celebration, and there’s a reason it comes back year after year.

Festival Activities for Your Weekend Getaway in Texas

The festival is held on the second Saturday in October, making this year’s date Saturday the 14th. Activities open at noon, and will be available until 6 pm. There’s plenty to do for the whole family, but here are some of the highlights:

  • An Art Show,
  • A Raffle,
  • A Silent Auction,
  • A Cake Walk,weekendgetawaysintexas
  • Live Entertainment,
  • A Dunking Booth,
  • And Vendors.

The downtown area loves to get in on the action, so you’ll want to walk around to see everything that’s going on.

There will also be a children’s area filled with games, bounce houses, crafts, and so much more.

Admission to the festival is free, but there is a $5 admission fee for access to the children’s area.

The festival will be held in Downtown Canton on North Buffalo St. off of Highway 64. The full address is:

Another October Weekend Getaway Idea

If the 14th won’t work out for you, don’t worry. The festivities continue with the annual Trail of Treats at the Forney Community Park. This event will be held on Saturday, October 28th, and will start at 4 pm.

Follow the 50+ candy booth “Trail of Treats” to the Spellman Amphitheater where the festivities continue with a sunset movie at 7 pm. There will also be onsite entertainment as well as games for the children.

Admission is free.

We Love Fall, and We Think You Will, Too

We’re excited for all the activities that help make this season feel so special. Local or not, there’s plenty to do this time of year. So pack up the family and hop on over for a day or two to see all Canton has to offer. No matter what you do or when you come, it’ll be a getaway to remember.
