Fall and Halloween Fun in Roswell

I love fall. Between the beautiful crisp air, leaves changing colors, hot apple cider and freshly picked apples, every day is a new adventure. At my age I think my friends would wonder if I’ve entered my second-childhood if I were to go trick-or-treating so I’m always on the lookout for fall adventures. Are you ready for some fall fun? Roswell has you covered with events through the end of October to entertain everyone in the family.
