September in the Finger Lakes:
Fall is a magnificent time to visit the Finger Lakes region. People come here from all over the world for school and work. The warmth of summer lingers on while mixing with crisp breezes in the morning and evenings. Visitors from out of town staying in area Finger Lakes vacation rentals enjoy magnificent fall scenery. Seemingly overnight, the solid green leaves of trees turn into various shades of golden yellow and crimson red. September is the perfect time to go out and explore the local Finger Lakes area cultural scene. People are pretty friendly and visitors are welcome to join in all the fun.
Newfield Olde Home Days:
Newfield, New York is truly representative of small town America. It’s a place that is easily overshadowed by flashier nearby cities with bigger populations. The town’s main claim to fame is being the home of the Newfield Bridge. The rare covered bridge is an historic landmark that sits over Cayuga Creek.
Each September the town comes out to celebrate Newfield Old Home Days, the town’s biggest event of the year. A parade kicks off the two-day festivities. There’s plenty of food, entertainment and even a 5K run. The festival raises money for local non-profit organizations.
Cobblestone Farm Winery Grape Day:
This charming winery is nestled next to Cayuga Lake in Romulus, New York. The winery produces a number of award winning wines that are available for purchase at their country store. There’s a wine tasting room that let’s you sample before making a selection. In addition to growing grapes for wine, the farm has a cherry orchard.
Come and celebrate Grape Day by indulging in wine tasting and sampling delicious homemade treats made from grapes like cookies, cheesecake and yummy pies.
