Fall in Yakima
Harvest is upon us.
Our days are getting shorter and the smell of pumpkin spice is in the air. The Yakima Valley is one of the most beautiful places to be in the Fall. Vibrant orange/red colors fill our trees and the community comes together for a ton of fun harvest related events right before the snow hits.
Here’s a few ideas for some amazing activities around our Valley. Click the links for more info! and enjoy!
