The crisp air is on its way (hopefully!). And with the cooler temperatures comes a million fall events… we can taste the apple cider now as I ride on a hayride through a pumpkin patch! Pemberton, NJ and the surrounding areas around Pine View Terrace have a multitude of events that take place in September and October. Between family fun events like “Boo at the Boardwalk” to more adult focused events such as Manahawkin, NJ’s “Fall Harvest & Wine Festival“, there is a little something for everyone.
If you are like us, we love attending these events to get a bit of outside time with friends and family before winter officially makes its appearance. So, we have included below a list of some of our favorite fall events within driving distance of Pine View Terrace (located in Pemberton, NJ)! Enjoy!
